View history in the archives

The Concordia University Archives support the mission of the university by retaining, organizing, and preserving materials critical to the growth and development of the institution in order to better appreciate God’s blessings and to have a basis on which to shape the future. We welcome you to view the archives, but ask that you respect our use policy.

Archives use policy

The Concordia University Archives primary users are CUAA faculty and staff, students and alumni. The Archives are available for use by the general public with approval of the CUAA Library Services Coordinator.

Many of the items in the Archives are unique and/or fragile and must be handled with care. Food, drink, and gum are prohibited when using or viewing the materials. Smoking is also prohibited. Only pencils may be used to take notes; absolutely no marks may be made on materials. All bags and coats must be checked before using materials.

Photocopying is permitted with the approval of the CUAA Library Services Coordinator only when it will not damage the materials and is allowed by federal copyright law.

Viewing the archives

Access to the archives is by appointment only. An Archives Material Request form should be completed for external requests for materials in the Archives. For access permission or questions, please contact Elizabeth Hartig, Library Services Coordinator, 734-995-7314.
