Located in the East Display cases on the upper floor of the Library
This month's Archives display traces the involvement of UCCS students in the Army Reserve Officer Training Corps. From the beginning of the Colorado Springs Center and prior to the establishment of the Mountain Ranger Battalion at UCCS in 1982, UCCS students participated in programs at Colorado College and later through University of Southern Colorado (now CSU-Pueblo). The display describes the Military Science curriculum and highlights activities of the Battalion.
More pictures of the display are available at the Kraemer Family Library's flickr page.
The Archives of the University of Colorado Colorado Springs (UCCS Archives) will identify, collect, organize and preserve materials that document the history and operations of the Colorado Springs campus and will facilitate their use for purposes of research and scholarly pursuits.
The purpose of the UCCS Archives is to function as the custodian of an authentic record of the Colorado Springs campus of the University of Colorado. It preserves and protects the original materials and records which document the activities, social traditions and administrative functions of the campus in a secure environment. It serves as a primary source of information on UCCS history and development.
The UCCS Archives is an open repository that serves the faculty, staff, and students of the University of Colorado Colorado Springs as well as outside researchers. Reference services and finding aids are available for collections.
The UCCS Archives staff is directed by the Archives Librarian with faculty Instructor rank. An Archival Processing Assistant with a one-year appointment works on a historical media project. A student worker and volunteers work on projects including digitization of archival materials, inventorying collections, and creation of indexes.
