Finding Materials

The majority of Archives and Special Collections’ primary source materials help to document the people and activities of The University of Montana, Western Montana, and the region. Secondary sources in the department serve as important reference tools, enhancing understanding of local and regional history and facilitating use of primary sources. Our Montana Room holds over 7,000 regional and historic maps, 10,000 books, university and regional newspapers, Montana government documents, and city directories. In addition we have over 3000 oral history interviews, 1,000 archival and manuscript collections, and nearly 100,000 photographs.
