The University Archives is open for research by appointment only, as collection materials need to be retrieved from preservation storage.  To request a research appointment, or to ask questions about University History in general, please complete the Ask an Archivist form.

For those who would prefer to research remotely, we will continue to provide virtual assistance.  Please complete the Ask an Archivist form and let us know what you need.   We're happy to talk with you via Zoom or Teams.
