What Will I Find?  Archives and special collections typically define the scope of their collections through a Collection Development Policy. Learn about what we collect here!                       


Access Policies and Restrictions

We strive to make our collections as open and accessible as possible. Some archival collections include fragile materials or sensitive information protected by federal and state privacy laws. Our Access Policy describes the basis for the few restrictions we have placed on our materials, and individual use agreements protect the privacy of individuals represented in our collections. Help us keep our collections as open as possible and respect others by completing and abiding by our use agreements and access policies!


Did You Know?

While the bills to establish ASU and UA were ratified by the 13th Arizona Territorial Assembly on the same day in 1885, ASU (then known as the Arizona Territorial Normal School) was the first institution of higher education to open for business in Arizona in February 1886!
