Wartburg College Archives: Visit the Archives
Wartburg College Archives is responsible for the collection and preservation of records that document the college’s history, development, operation, policies, people, activities, and events.
Archival materials are, by their nature, rare, often irreplaceable, and sometimes fragile. The following precautions have been instituted to ensure these objects are protected:
To Safeguard Collections, please do not:
Bring food or drink into the Archives
Use pens or ink
Remove any records from the Reference Room
Mark, annotate or rearrange original records in any way
Reading Room Etiquette:
Store all backpacks, computer cases, handbags, coats and other personal belongings
Be considerate of others using space and refrain from loud or unnecessary conversation
Do not enter “Staff Only” areas
Careful Handling of Records:
Please ensure your hands are clean and free from lotions
Do not lean on, or trace from any records or use them as a support for writing
If you need to flag a page, paper will be provided to use as a bookmark
Please maintain the existing order of items in folders and document boxes. Documents must not be marked, rearranged, or removed from their covers
Inform staff if you wish to request copies of items. You may use your own camera, or staff can photocopy or digitize items for you (fees may apply)
NOTE: It may not be possible at all times to provide appropriate machinery for reading, viewing or accessing non-print materials. We recommend you contact the Archives prior to your visit to ensure the materials you want to view are available.
