ArchivesSpace at UNI

What is ArchivesSpace?

ArchivesSpace is a database containing descriptive guides, or “finding aids,” to University of Northern Iowa archival collections, which includes the University Archives and the Manuscripts Collection. It is also your entry point to browse and search for archival and other unique materials at the University of Northern Iowa’s Special Collections & University Archives (SC&UA) in Rod Library. 

If you have questions for SC&UA staff, feel free to email us at or stop by the SC&UA reading room. Please check our hours before your visit. If you wish to schedule a research visit, you may do so in LibCal.

Certain UNI Museum collection guides are also currently available in ArchivesSpace. For questions regarding those guides and related collections, please contact the UNI Museum.
