The archives contain the official records of the university, including the records of the board of trustees, the presidents, individual colleges and academic departments, and other administrative offices and divisions.
The Archives and Rare Books Library is open to the University community and the public Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. except for University holidays. We ask that patrons make an appointment, especially if travelling from distances or doing genealogical research. Some of our material is stored in an offsite facility and can take from three days to one week to be made available.
All researchers will be asked to sign our guest registry and provide a photo ID at the time of each visit.
Photocopies can be made for 25 cents per page. Most rare books and some collections cannot be photocopied due to possible damage to the material, but it might be possible to take non-flash photographs.
