The purpose of the University Archives is to collect, preserve, and administer the records which document the history of Idaho State University and its operations. Due to a number of factors, including privacy legislation concerning student records and other related laws, materials housed in the University Archives may require permission from the Head of Special Collections and University Archives in order to be viewed. The Head may, in turn, contact the designated administrator for permission, depending on content. While these records are part of the "public record" of the state, Idaho Code recognizes several exemptions from disclosure.
*Please note that not all collections in the University Archives have been processed. We are working hard to rectify this; however, processing collections takes time, and due to staff limitations, takes even longer. If you are requesting records from the University Archives, please contact us well in advance of when the materials are needed, as it will take time to locate the items. Your patience is appreciated.
