University Libraries

Your Story, Included

What is your story?

You are a part of University of Dayton’s rich history. Your story — and the items you kept from your time here — have enduring value in the University Archives. 

Were you in a campus club or on an athletic team? Did you witness an event or attend a concert on campus? Did you study abroad or go on a mission trip? 

Your experiences can be preserved and shared in meaningful ways through:

  • Photographs: originals, copies, scans or digital
  • Postcards
  • Maps
  • Organizational newsletters and scrapbooks
  • Posters and flyers
  • Memorabilia
  • Mementos or other items from religious celebrations on campus
  • Letters, playbills, programs and event keepsakes

With every donated collection, University Archives will:

  • Review your material
  • Create an inventory so your item or collection can be easily discovered and used
  • Follow best practices to preserve physical and digital materials
  • Where appropriate, promote collections through our website and use them in classes, online exhibits and/or public events

Donations ensure your story is shared with future generations. Contact University Archives at 937-229-4256 or to get started.
