The University of Rochester Archives collects, preserves, and shares the University's history through classes, presentations, and rotating exhibits in the Great Hall of Rush Rhees Library. The University Archives is part of the Department of Rare Books, Special Collections, and Preservation (RBSCP) and is located on the second floor of Rush Rhees Library. Information on general Special Collections holdings is available on the Rare Books and Special Collections page.
Some University Archives collections have restrictions on access and use, so we suggest that researchers contact us before visiting. For more information about how and what the Archives collects, consult our collection development policy, the University Archives policy, and see recent additions on our New Books page.
