As we come to the end of the semester and the calendar year, please keep in mind that the University Archives welcomes the transfer of records and papers from university offices and faculty. While reviewing your files, please keep us in mind as a repository for Wake Forest-related records. The mission of the University Archives is to preserve historically valuable records and other materials, which document the development and history of Wake Forest University. You play an important role in making sure these records are preserved for the future!

Materials are accepted in most formats, including paper records, publications, electronic records, images, and three-dimensional artifacts. Please consult the University Records Retention Schedule for specific details on what to keep and what to dispose of, and review our guidelines for transferring university records or donating faculty papers. We are glad to supply boxes and other assistance, as needed.

If you have any questions, please contact Tanya Zanish-Belcher, University Archivist, x5755,, or visit Special Collections & Archives, Room 625 in the Z. Smith Reynolds Library.
