Finding ASU History

Basic tools for finding ASU history materials

ASU Media Relations records include many photographs and press releases.

ASU Newspaper Index provides indexing for the hardcopy State Press and ASU Insight primarily from about 1985-present.

ASU Student Newspapers includes access to the student newspaper under various names over the history of the school.

Arizona Archives Online: Archives staff compile or write biographies in the course of producing finding aids for faculty papers or records of specific university colleges. This search result for keyword "faculty" in Arizona Archives Online mostly finds administrative records, but some information can likely be gleaned from these sources.

University Archives Index describes hardcopy news clipping or "Bio" files compiled from about 1960-1985.

Course Catalogs and Bulletins

A number of ASU course catalogs and bulletins are digitized and available online. These materials are a great source of information about academic programs, faculty, calendars, mission statements, course descriptions, as well as student clubs and activities.

ASU's Catalog and Course Archives webpage is also an excellent resource.

The ASU Library acknowledges the twenty-three Native Nations that have inhabited this land for centuries. Arizona State University's four campuses are located in the Salt River Valley on ancestral territories of Indigenous peoples, including the Akimel O’odham (Pima) and Pee Posh (Maricopa) Indian Communities, whose care and keeping of these lands allows us to be here today. ASU Library acknowledges the sovereignty of these nations and seeks to foster an environment of success and possibility for Native American students and patrons. We are advocates for the incorporation of Indigenous knowledge systems and research methodologies within contemporary library practice. ASU Library welcomes members of the Akimel O’odham and Pee Posh, and all Native nations to the Library.
