Special Collections & Archives offers a wide variety of outreach activities designed to make our collections and the amazing history they contain available to everyone. Programs are available here in the Archives, on campus, or an off-site location. Activities include presentations, tours, classroom visits, continuing education opportunities, and exhibits.


Staff can speak to your group or organization on wide variety of archival and historical topics, including an overview of our collections and services, the Wright Brothers, aviation history, local history, genealogy, or University history.


General and special subject tours of the Archives are available for individuals and groups. These tours take you behind the scenes to see treasures from the collections.

Classroom Visits

Special Collections & Archives encourages the use of primary source materials in education and research. The Archives staff works with teachers of all levels, elementary through university, to help incorporate primary sources into classroom learning, based on the areas and topics in our collections.

Continuing Education

Workshops and presentations are available on genealogy research, care of photographs, preservation, records management, and other archival topics.


Special Collections & Archives develops a number of exhibits throughout the year for display in Dunbar Library and special events.
