Hoiday Closure

The Archives will be closed July 17-25, and will reopen by appointment on July 26. Archives email and voicemail will be monitored during this time, but will not be acted upon until July 26.


Due to ongoing COVID-19 concerns the Archives is open for research by appointment only. Email us at archives@mst.edu to arrange a visit. Stay safe!


Request:  As we all go through the novel Coronavirus pandemic it is important for us to document the experience. The Archives is saving campus-wide emails and postings, and will be working with others to save Zoom recordings of meetings. We ask that if you have materials related to the campus response to the pandemic or to your personal response and experience, you consider donating that material to the Archives. Donated material will greatly assist researchers in the future who wish to study the S&T response.

What is the Archives?

Established in 1978, the Missouri University of Science and Technology Archives houses the historical, legal, and cultural records of the University going back to the beginning in 1870. The Archives collects and preserves departmental, professorial, and  alumni materials. These include photographs, the day-to-day records of the University, and campus artifacts.

The Archives works with faculty, staff, students, and the public on research projects related to the University. Patrons are required to adhere to rules governing the use and handling of archival materials. The University of Missouri Record Center web page will also answer questions  on official records disposition.

Does the Archives accept donations?

The Archives seeks materials related to the history of the campus and its various departments and programs, and those associated with it, such as alumni, faculty, staff, and friends of the University. These items include personal papers, meeting minutes, department records, student organization materials, St. Patrick's memorabilia, official department publications, graphic materials, and other historically significant items.

We are no longer accepting copies of the yearbook Rollamo.

Donations help preserve the history of the university. If you have items that you are interested in donating to the Archives please contact us at (573) 341-6954, or via Archives email.
