It’s not easy being the official memory bank for Ohio State.
University Archives is charged with the honor – and challenge – of preserving Ohio State’s memories. This team handles every aspect from collection and distribution of donated materials to reference requests and special projects. Increasingly our work includes online and digital archives. The act of digitizing materials has significantly increased both the number of donations and the number of questions we receive. The University Archives team is up for the challenge, but we need more funds to meet the demands of the digital age.
By giving, you can help preserve and share Ohio State’s most cherished memories.
When you give to University Archives, you help Ohio State collect, store and distribute materials from our alumni, friends, colleges and departments. Your support of the Paul and Sandy Watkins Endowment will allow us to provide essential development and training to staff, fund new special projects and hire additional student employees. Your gift today is even more important as we prepare for Ohio State’s 150th birthday – our sesquicentennial – and commemorate this exciting milestone in the university’s history.
