About the Archives

The Archives of the University of Michigan-Dearborn collects material that helps the University tell its own story, documents its history, and provides opportunities for researchers to engage with a variety of topics.

The Archives is located in the Mardigian Library. The Archives consists of records generated by units of the University in the course of daily operations, but does not include personnel or student records. The largest collections are from the Chancellor's Office, the Office of the Provost and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs, and University Relations. The Archives also holds records of Student Government, student publications, material from the Center for the Study of Automotive Heritage, and oral histories, as well as some faculty collections.

The Archives is open for research by appointment. Contact Librarian: Teague Orblych, interim contact for Archives, or 1-313-593-5562.
