The Collection

Much of the collection is housed in various locations around campus so advanced notice is appreciated before visiting in order to ensure the collections you want are available.


In addition to University records, the University holds an art collection containing artworks of local artists such as Cullen Yates, Havard MacPherson, and Sterling Strauser. Campus offices may request artwork to be hung in their offices by contacting the Archivist and Special Collections Librarian, Elizabeth Scott.
