The University Archives is staffed by three professional archivists committed to the profession and dedicated to patron service. Kris and Megan are Certified Archivists (CA) and Kaelyn is working towards her certification. In addition, both Megan and Kaelyn are working towards their Digital Archives Specialists (DAS) Certification.
The most efficient way to request information from the Archives is to use the Ask An Archivist form. Archivists monitor this e-mail account during regular business hours.
