Important things to keep in mind.

  • University Archives are open to all researchers regardless of academic affiliation.

  • To ensure the materials you need are available, our collections are accessible by advance appointment only. 

  • Some materials have been digitized and are accessible for remote digital access. 

  • Materials from the University Archives do not circulate and are only accessible on-site in the University Archives reading room (Hunt Library, 2nd floor). 

  • Requests to view materials from the University Archives must be submitted five business days before your proposed visit date to allow staff sufficient time to retrieve and prepare for your visit.

  • Access to archival moving image and sound materials is limited to items that have been digitized or can be viewed safely (to be determined on a case by case basis, at the archivist’s discretion.)
