Records in the University Archives range from the earliest days of the Normal School in 1839 to the present time. They include materials such as minutes, reports, ledgers, subject files, publications, and photographs. There are, however, gaps within the collection, due in part to the fact that the University Archives was established only within the past thirty years. For information on additional college records available in other locations on campus, contact the Special Collections Librarian.
The bulk of the records are organized by record group. These record groups are named for the office or department of the University from which the materials originated. An inventory that lists the items found within the record groups is available in the Special Collections.
