Planning a Visit

The University Archives and Area Research Center is open to researchers of all ages.

In order to get the most out of your visit, it is important that you be prepared and organized.

  • Have a clear idea of what you already know to be fact and what questions you hope to get answered.
  • Visit our Archives Resources page, or call or e-mail to determine exactly what resources we have and whether they might be helpful to you.
  • Researching historical records takes time so plan on spending long enough to be effective.
  • Once you get here, don't be afraid to ask questions. We're here to help you get the most out of your visit.
  • Read our "Rules for Using the Research Room" before you come so you are familiar with how to use our special materials.
  • A self-service copier, microfilm readers/printers/scanner, and a regular scanner are available for use. Look at our fees before you come.
