University Archives

The University Archives is the designated repository for material of historic or administrative value to the university.  As a unit of the Special Collections Department, University Archives is located on the 3rd floor of the Cunningham Memorial Library.  The Indiana State University Archives actively collects and manages records of value to the university community.  A wide variety of university records, student publications, committee minutes, photographs, and more are available for anyone to research.

ISU Archives follows archival best practices by organizing each collection by its creator, that is, deposited collections are kept with the records created by the same office or individual.  With most collections, efforts are made to retain the original order the creator(s) organized the records.  Patrons researching a specific subject should expect to review several collections from a variety of creators.

All research will be conducted in the Special Collections Reading Room (room 317) located on the 3rd floor of the Library.  Contact 812-237-2610 or email to find out our current hours 

Please view the Prepare before Visiting page for further information on how to prepare for researching in the Indiana State University Archives.
