UL Lafayette Special Collections

This guide presents the different factions of the UL Lafayette Special Collections at Edith Garland Dupré Library.

University Archives

The University Archives houses the archival records of the University of Louisiana at Lafayette from its inception to the present. The mission of the University Archives is to preserve and provide access to the University’s records of permanent, historical, legal, fiscal, and administrative value. Being over 2000 feet in length and covering more than a century's worth of history, the University Archives continues to grow and redefine itself as the University itself evolves.

Select records include the Office of the President, academic and administrative offices and units, annual and operative budgets, publications, self-studies, student organizations, and artifacts.
