University Archives and Records Management serves as the central repository for the historical, administrative, and business records of the University of Delaware. The mission of this unit is to document the history of the University of Delaware, its predecessor institutions – including the Academy of Newark, Newark College, Delaware College, and the Women’s College of Delaware – its Board of Trustees, its constituent colleges, departments, and programs, its athletics programs, its administrative offices and units, and its students. It accomplishes this through managing, safeguarding, and preserving collections of historical records and objects pertaining to the history of the University, providing access to those collections for researchers, and disseminating knowledge about the history of the University.
Collection strengths include records of the Office of the President, records of the Women’s College of Delaware, records of the Foreign Study Plan, records of the Cooperative Extension Service, a robust photography collection, and a significant collection of University publications. University Archives and Records Management is separate from the University Library and reports to the Office of the Vice President and University Secretary.
