The Dr. Jo Ann Rayfield Archives at Illinois State University is the official repository for selected materials that document the history of the university and all aspects of university life. The University Archives collects, preserves and makes accessible these materials to support Milner Library and the ISU community's research and teaching goals.
Collected materials include official records from governing boards, campus offices, faculty and student governance bodies, committees, colleges, departments and faculty and student organizations. In addition, the University Archives collects the professional and personal papers of faculty, administrative staff and alumni. The University Archives also collects materials on Illinois educational organizations pertaining to the university and local manuscripts or archival materials of individuals, clubs or business relating to the university.
The University Archives also houses an Illinois Regional Archives Depository (IRAD) that contains government records from 14 counties in East Central Illinois.
