Retrieving Records from the University Archives and Records Center
Permanent records stored in the University Archives space in Ekstrom Library can usually be retrieved the same day. The University Archives has a scheduled weekly pickup of non-permanent records stored in the storage facilities at 1901 Floyd or 1980 Arthur Streets. Records officers should call or email the University Archives to request records in the warehouses (852-6674 or complete the electronic request form).
The shaded area on the returned and completed Transmittal Form should include an accession number (a four digit year followed by a three digit number, such as 2012-001) and a shelf location (such as TAFL 75-4-3 through 75-6-1). Please include this information along with the folder title and box number in your request; it will speed retrieval of your records.
Records retrieved by UARC are sent via campus mail. If expedited service is necessary, records may often be picked up at the University Archives location on the fourth floor of Ekstrom Library or at the warehouses by office staff; please call UARC at 852-6674 to arrange a pickup. Similarly, records may be returned via campus mail or arrangements may be made to meet Archives staff at the warehouses to drop them off.
