As we come to the end of the semester and the academic year, the University Archives (Special Collections & Archives, 625 Z. Smith Reynolds Library) would like to remind all faculty and staff that we welcome the transfer of records and papers from university offices. We also encourage students to donate materials which document their time and experiences at Wake Forest. The mission of the University Archives is to preserve historically valuable records and 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, born-digital content or electronic records, images, and three-dimensional artifacts – for more information, see what the University Archives accepts. Please also consult the University Records Retention Schedule for specific details on what to keep permanently and what to dispose of, and review our guidelines for transferring university records or donating faculty papers. We are glad to supply boxes, flash drives, or other assistance, as needed. If you have any questions, please contact Tanya Zanish-Belcher, University Archivist, x5755,
