UVU through the ages

Michael Freeman, UVU Library Director

The UVU Archives is ramping up its responsibilities to be the central repository to gather and preserve the University’s history. The Archives is the institutional memory, holding materials which document the school’s development and accomplishments. We need to develop a campus culture of sending historical documents and materials to the archives so that we can retain our history in one central place.

What types of materials do we want? Simply put, anything that reflects the history of the institution over time. Some examples would be: accreditation and self-study reports, annual narrative reports, assessment studies, minutes of important meetings, catalogs, commencement and convocation programs, event programs and publicity materials, fact books, directories, handbooks, newsletters and publications, photographs, personal papers and scrapbooks. If you have information or materials that you would like to contribute to the Archives, please download our Digital Repository Donation Form (PDF).

In addition, the archives is conducting a series of oral interviews with long-time employees and associates of the University. If you are interested in any of these opportunities, or want to know more about the Archives in general, please contact us. (Links and phone numbers below.)
