Media & Artifacts

Records produced by or about the university that have special storage, preservation, and access needs. 


100. Oral History collection

Approximately 200 oral history interviews have been conducted by university staff and students over a period spanning five decades.  Organizing these interviews will be a long-term project for archives staff since some are currently inaccessible because of their physical format. Interviews will be added to the website when they become available.


200. Photograph and Negative Collections

From a small group of early 20th century prints to 1.5 million negative frames from the 1930s to the 2000s, the University Archives holds a treasure trove of images.  Digitizing this vast collection is another long-term project.


300. Postcards

From campus scenes to the San Marcos River, the postcard collection documents San Marcos throughout the past century.  Visit the Campus Postcards digital exhibition to view some highlights of the collection.
