The University Archives is the repository for non-current official materials of enduring value that document the institutional memory of the University of Arkansas Fayetteville campus. The purpose of the University Archives is to document the history of the university and provide source material to administrators, faculty, staff, students, alumni and members of the community. The University Archives is not a records management program. University Archives is a unit of Special Collections, a division of the University of Arkansas Libraries. University Archives materials are subject to the policies and procedures set down by the Special Collections Division and the University Libraries.
The mission of the University Archives is to collect, preserve, describe and make available collections of enduring historical value. These collections document student activities and the teaching, research, and administrative activities of the University of Arkansas Fayetteville campus. The University Archives supports and advances the teaching, research, and service missions of the University of Arkansas and promotes research and scholarship by making available and encouraging the use of its collections by administrators, faculty, students and other scholars interested in the University of Arkansas.
