Storage of Historical University Records

Permanently valuable university records may be stored in the University Archives. The primary mission of the University Archives is to collect, organize, describe, preserve and make accessible institutional records that document the history and development of Wright State University. Storage space is reserved for records of historic interest or with an enduring research value. Examples may include: departmental publications and reports; administrative and academic committee records; history files documenting development of department or office; student and faculty organization files; institutional budget material; student publications; photographs and slides; memorabilia and other ephemera.

Reference Services

Special Collections and Archives staff provides reference services to the university community as well as the general public for the materials housed in the University Archives. Reference requests may be made via email, regular mail, or through our Website. Materials are also available for use during regular posted hours.
