The University Archives serves as the collective memory of the University of Maryland, from the granting of the charter for the Maryland Agricultural College on March 6, 1856, to the present day.

Established by the Board of Regents in 1972, the Archives is the official repository for all of the university’s permanent records and actively gathers administrative files, university publications, photographs, audiovisual materials, and memorabilia that document all aspects of campus life.

From the 1979 Diamondback – Archives aid researchers

In skimming through the 1979 Diamondback we came across a headline that naturally caught our eye: “Archives aid researchers, McKeldin room gains popularity.” We’re glad to see that students and researchers were so satisfied in 1979, however, we’ve come along way and have a bigger space with even more resources now in 2014! So stop in Hornbake Library and discover the archives for yourself! We have plenty of knowledgeable librarians ready to help.

Small correction in the article. The Archives was established in 1972, not 1976.
