ENGWRT 1750: Senior Seminar in Nonfiction

This guide is designed to help students in professor Jennifer Lee's spring 2017 Senior Seminar in Nonfiction.

Archives Service Center

The Archives Service Center is open Monday through Friday, 9 am to 4:45 pm. At this time we do not have weekend hours. When conducting research in archives, large blocks of time are more useful that short stints. Block out at least 2 hours for visits.

Finding Records

What Are Archives?

Archives are any material that been identified as having a lasting historical value. These items document the lives and activities of people, associations, businesses, and university departments. They were given to the archives, most often by the people who created them, so that they could be preserved and made available to others. The material held at the ASC is organized and stored differently than in a library. Archival material is organized into manuscript collections or records groups. The size of these collections may be as small as a single item or large enough to fill hundreds of boxes. These materials are non-circulating and must be used only at the ASC.
