University Archives


The IPFW University archives collection includes only material related to the history of the IPFW campus. It does not collect material about Indiana University or Purdue University. It does not collect local history information other than material that has been cataloged and appears in IUCAT Catalog (Indiana University's online library catalog).

The collection includes no personnel files other than biographical information, news releases, honors received, and general information about faculty, staff, administrators and friends of IPFW who have had a significant role in its history.

Information frequently requested is available to users through the Encyclopedia of IPFW History.

Archives maintains a file of sources available for use by contacting Archives. These files include memos, news releases, pamphlets, brochures, official notices, programs for events, newsletters, commencement programs, etc. The files are arranged by subject. None of the files may be taken from the library, although copies can be made in most instances.

Archives has a photo file which is arranged by person, department or event. To access the photo files one should contact Archives. Permission forms, both for use and/or for publication are required.
