The University Archives is a repository for records of lasting value once they are no longer needed for current use. It exists as the institutional memory of UCO and provides the larger community with a broad historical focus on UCO's evolution and role in society.
The records generated by the schools, departments, and offices of the University are the most tangible evidence of UCO's history and activities. They provide scholars with essential documentation on how UCO has pursued its role as a leading institution of higher education in Oklahoma.
These historical records exist in many formats including handwritten, typewritten, and printed documents; photographic negatives, prints and slides, audio and video tapes, architectural plans and blueprints, oral history tapes and transcripts, University publications, scrapbooks, artifacts, and ephemera.
Listed below are examples of what is contained in this collection.

Student and Faculty Directories
Faculty and Employee Handbooks
