Repository description (extant): [T]here are two programs to this institution: the University Archives and the UW Oshkosh Area Research Center of the Wisconsin Historical Society. The combined mission of both programs is to collect, preserve and provide access to records of historical significance to the members of the university and public community at large.
The University Archives serves the historical needs of the University of Wisconsin, Oshkosh, permanently storing historically significant campus records and providing reference services for those records to the university and greater community. The University Archives has records of the President/Chancellors from Albee to Guiles; copies of the Advance and Advance Titan newspapers; a complete run of the Quiver yearbooks; records of student and faculty government; and numerous other series. At this time few University Archives collections are cataloged in the library's on-line catalog. Contact the archivist directly with questions regarding the University Archives.
The UW Oshkosh ARC is one of 14 statewide and provides access to hundreds of local interest collections of historical material owned by the Wisconsin Historical Society. The Area Research center serves a geographic region including Dodge, Fond du Lac, Green Lake, Marquette, and Winnebago counties and holds records only from that region. There are two parts to the ARC collection: local government records and manuscripts.
Repository type: University Special Collection
