Repository description (extant): The University Archives & Records Center is both a repository for collections documenting the Louisville community and the "Memory of the University." (Our mission is described in greater detail in our Mission and Goals statement.) The University Archives & Records Center, or UARC, was founded in 1973.
Located on the fourth floor of Ekstrom Library, UARC has more than 11,000 linear feet of University records, personal papers, and records of other organizations. UARC also holds a collection of over 2,000 oral history interviews, as well as microfilms of collections and newspapers held elsewhere. In addition, the Archives has a substantial vertical files collection which contains clippings, pamphlets and newsletters documenting various individuals, organizations, events and other subjects relevant to the University and the community. UARC also has a significant collection of reference materials that complement our primary source holdings. For more information on our collections, visit our Collection Description page, or search Minerva - the catalog for catalog entries for UARC holdings.
