Archives & Special Collections
Archives and Special Collections preserves, promotes, and provides access to the recorded academic and cultural heritage of the University of Regina.
Our archival collection consists of original materials relating to the University, its faculty, staff, and students, dating from the inception of Regina College in 1911 to the present day. This includes theses written and defended since the establishment of graduate programs in 1966. In addition, we collect private papers in various areas; our specific focus is the visual arts, journalism, and Saskatchewan literature.
Archives and Special Collections maintains oURspace, the open access institutional repository of the University of Regina. oURspace provides faculty, staff, and students the opportunity to present their research in a broad digital form.
Special Collections consists of published materials that are rare, valuable, or have particular cultural and historical importance. The subject coverage of this collection is fairly broad but certain areas, such as western Canadian and Saskatchewan history, are emphasized.
Archives and Special Collections is also mandated to advise and assist University units in the management of their records from the time of creation through to disposition.
