Preserving History

Preservation Plan
Yankton College is on a long path to preserving its 103-year-old collection of artifacts and historical documents. The Yankton College Board of Trustees has shown its support for the College preservation by forming a Legacy Committee designed to plan for the future of Yankton College, which includes preservation and storage of College artifacts and historical documents.
To learn about preservation practices, Yankton College staff and volunteers are participating in collection care workshops sponsored by the South Dakota State Historical Society  and the Association of South Dakota Museums  
Yankton College has a large collection of periodicals, letters, photographs, college memorabilia and other artifacts that are on display and/or are available to the public for research.
