University Archives and Records

The keeper of the words, images, and sounds that tell the story of life at Appalachian State University from its founding to the present day.

The University Archives and Records Management work together to identify, manage, preserve, and share Appalachian State University’s records having legal, administrative or enduring historical value.

Open to anyone with an interest in the history of Appalachian, the University Archives houses not only the official records gathered from offices and departments but also the papers of individuals and organizations that are part of the history of the university.  Archives carefully collected and preserved are useless unless they are shared, so we are eager to help you with your research about Appalachian.
