Records Management

Records management increases administrative efficiency and ensures compliance with institutional policies and state and federal laws. UAHC staff can provide guidance to departments for the management of official university records. We now have a tool for transferring permanent electronic records.


University Archives & Historical Collections of Michigan State University is a place of discovery. More than 150 years of MSU history can be explored, including original letters and diaries, photographs, and oral histories. Our collections span the entirety of MSU’s history and also contain historical materials not related to MSU. Some of our collection highlights include materials that document the physical campus and grounds, early student life, the lumber industry, environmentalism in Michigan, and the Civil War
