October is American Archives Month. Archives allow us to preserve and revisit our history. The UIS Archives played an important role in the 40th anniversary of the university last year, and will continue to preserve our history for future generations. In honor of this month, Brookens Library will be highlighting historical photos and other institutional documents that are held in the UIS Archives. Learn about UIS back in the day by following our posts on Facebook and Twitter throughout the month of October.
If you have historical photographs of the campus, and would like to donate them to the UIS Archives, please contact UIS Archivist Tom Wood at 217-206-6520 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
