Special Collections and University Archives

University Archives

The University Archives serves as the official memory of UNF by preserving items that document its administrative and intellectual history. In addition to collecting official university documents such as annual reports and publications, the University Archives also saves materials documenting activities and functions of the entire university community: faculty, staff, and students.
