Archives and Special Collections, University Library: University Archives

About the University Archives


The University Archives will retain all materials required by the Texas A&M System records retention schedule that are designated “A” for permanent retention, along with any reviewed by the archivist and determined to be of permanent value.

Any other materials important to the development of the university that document special events, marketing efforts, etc. will be collected, along with documentation of administrators, faculty, and staff (profiles, pictures, etc.).  Faculty publications will be collected for the University Library’s holdings.  Whenever possible, two copies of documents, artifacts, and other items will be retained.

Digital Commons

We have begun to upload digital images from the University Archives to Digital Commons. This is an ongoing project for the Archives & Special Collections, so make sure to check back often for new images!
