Welcome to University Archives!

Four individuals holding a shovel that's in the groundThe Archives is the repository for university publications and records of historical and research importance. In addition to collecting official university documents, we are also eager to acquire materials which document and depict the activities and functions of our entire university community, encompassing faculty, staff and students. The collection includes college catalogs, publications, memorabilia, photographs and other materials pertaining to the University and its faculty, staff and students.

Hours and Location: University Archives is located in the Special Collections area on the first floor, Room 1301. Due to the nature of our non-circulating materials and in order to best utilize the collections, access is by appointment. Contact e-mail:

Gifts and Donations

We have automatic deposit of many primary documents from campus offices, but for a good part of the collection (i.e, memorabilia, announcements, programs), we rely on the goodwill and assistance of college and departmental offices, and members of the UNF community. We welcome donations of additional items, particularly photographs, to enhance our collection.

Keep Archives in mind when planning campus events - announcements, programs, and invitations would help us keep a record of elusive campus activities. Drop two copies in the Campus Mail to: Library, University Archives. Producing mailing lists for online newsletters? Put Archives on those lists to receive online materials!

We encourage members to become active in collecting materials and to serve as our "eyes and ears" for potential donations. We will be happy to go to campus offices and assess potential donations. We also encourage individuals to contact us to share UNF memories and reminiscences. Contact  e-mail:
