What is SAIL?

SAIL is an online repository that allows users to access the digitized resources of the Christopher Newport University archives. Here you will find documents and images related to the history of the University from its beginnings as Christopher Newport College, as well as resources on the departments, faculty, students, and others that have contributed to the history of CNU.

SAIL allows us to capture, store, index, preserve and redistribute materials in digital formats that may be useful for your research, or for educational, scholarly, and historical purposes.
