Donate your Materials

Help us preserve campus history for future generations! The Archives actively collects materials that document all aspects of campus history from UW-Madison colleges, departments, faculty, research groups, student and staff organizations, alumni and other entities with a relationship to our campus.

We collect analog and born digital formats including photographs, audio and film/video formats, oral histories, maps, illustrations and art, and artifacts and ephemeral materials.

Policies and procedures for donating materials to the Archives vary for the following categories:

Items added to the Archives collections will be cataloged into the Library Catalog, rehoused in the Archives and made available to the public for research.
