Special Collections is the repository for the archival records of enduring historical value from The University of Texas at Arlington. These records comprise the University Archives and include material from the University's seven forerunner schools, beginning with Arlington College, a private institution founded in 1895.
Material retained by the University Archives includes correspondence, memoranda, financial and statistical reports, budgets, files from the offices of the president and of the provost/vice president for academic affairs, minutes of various campus committees and student groups and of The University of Texas System Board of Regents, photographs and negatives, proposals, scrapbooks, theses and dissertations, and artifacts. Printed materials, such as newspapers and newsletters, yearbooks, university catalogs, and other university publications, are also collected. In addition, the University Archives maintains an extensive collection of oral history interviews, primarily with faculty and administrators of the school.
Selected List of Collections
[We will continue to add collections as they are processed. Finding Aids will be added and linked in the near future. Please continue to monitor this page for further information.]
All collections, both processed and unprocessed, are listed and described in the 2000 edition of A Guide to Archives and Manuscripts in the Special Collections Division at The University of Texas at Arlington Libraries. An on-line version of the Guide is available and a loose-leaf paper version of the Guide is available at the Special Collections reference desk. Most of the university collections are also cataloged and listed in OCLC and the UTA Libraries' electronic public access catalog, PULSe.
