The University of Michigan-Dearborn Campus Archive is located inside the Mardigian Library and houses records documenting the history of the campus and affiliated organizations and individuals. It includes materials created by the units and their employees, including faculty, staff and administrators. These policies are meant to protect the material, the privacy of individuals and the copyright of the Regents of the University of Michigan. Material is available for research by faculty, staff and administrators and their representatives and to the public, except as notes in the guide to the material. The Campus Archive does not keep student folders or personnel files

Remote Requests

If you would like to make a remote request, please fill out the UM-Dearborn Campus Archive Request Form to inquire about materials in the collection. Please provide at least 2 weeks notice for all requested materials. Although staff will try to accommodate last minute requests, we cannot guarantee requests made less than 2 weeks in advance. Additionally, the Campus Archive is minimally staffed and we greatly appreciate as much advance notice as possible to effectively prioritize requests.

In Person Research Appointments

If you would like to schedule a time to view materials in person, please fill out the UM-Dearborn Campus Archive Request Form. The Campus Archive is minimally staffed and can accommodate on site visits on a limited basis.

Notice of Interest in Unprocessed Collections

The University of Michigan-Dearborn Campus Archive is unable to provide access to unprocessed collections. This will prevent us from misplacing or damaging fragile materials and protect any sensitive private information such as Social Security numbers and medical or academic records. In addition, some materials may be covered by donor-imposed or legal restrictions.

Please contact the Campus Archive at with further questions or concerns.
