Every year in October we celebrate American Archives Month to raise awareness about the importance of preserving, cataloging, and caring for important materials. This month we celebrate archives and archivists across the country. Join in on the American Archives Month celebration at the University of Puget Sound by exploring our digital collections: browse historic photographs of campus in A Sound Past, check out some cool university ephemera, or search our student newspaper “The Trail”. Or stop by the Archives & Special Collections and look through old manuscripts, artists’ books, and many other collections. Archivists have the important responsibility of preserving the heritage of our country, state, and school so take the opportunity to discover these historical treasures.
The Archives & Special Collections is open on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday from 12:00-3:00 p.m. or by appointment.
