SLAC story


SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory is one of the world's leading research laboratories. Established in 1962 at Stanford University in Menlo Park, California, as a particle physics research center, SLAC is now a multipurpose laboratory for astrophysics, photon science, accelerator and particle physics research.

SLAC's Archives and History Office is a coordinate archive to the Stanford University Archives. As such, it ensures that the Laboratory's history is identified, collected, preserved and made accessible to the SLAC and Stanford communities, to researchers and to the public.

Founded in 1989, the AHO has primary responsibility for the Laboratory's documentary heritage, but relies on the community to help it in this endeavor.

The SLAC Archives and History Office has the following responsibilities:

  • Serves as a repository for documentation of the Laboratory's organizational and scientific history;
  • Evaluates, selects, and preserves specific materials of archival significance created by Stanford University entities operating on the SLAC campus;
  • Ensures compliance with relevant state and federal laws and with DOE records management policies and procedures;
  • Promotes knowledge of the Laboratory's unique history and important scientific and technical accomplishments;
  • Assists in the use of its collections by members of the Laboratory and University communities, visiting scholars, and the public.
  • Adheres to the International Council on Archives (ICA) Principles of Access to Archives and to the Society of American Archivists (SAA) Core Values and Code of Ethics
