The collections of the UCCS Archives consist of materials generated by offices, organizations and individuals important to the development of the Colorado Springs campus. These collections contain primary source material, including correspondence, reports, photographs, publications, scrapbooks, audio-visual recordings, press clippings and printed ephemera. The collections exist to support, supplement, and complement programs of research, education, and scholarship on the UCCS campus.
