OSU Cultural Resource Centers ~ SCARC Archival Materials

Archival collections and materials in the university's archives that document the OSU CRCs' histories.


OSU's Cultural Resource Centers (CRCs) have a rich and diverse history, much of which is available as part of the university's Special Collections & Archives Research Center. This guide offers a listing (a growing list) of archival materials available pertaining to each of the CRCs.

You will note that some CRCs have more complete histories than others. The archives is actively seeking materials to add to the CRCs collections. If you have ideas and/or content, please contact:

How to Use This Guide

This guide is organized by each individual CRC. Some CRCs have their own RG (record group) collection, materials available online, and others have very little information altogether. When possible, there will be links to more information, either an archival finding aid (i.e. a narrative inventory of a collection), a blog post, or a small online exhibit.

There are some types of materials that pertain to all the CRCs, like the Beaver Yearbook and the "Minorities in the Barometer" Collection, that are listed in the "All CRCs" tab within this guide.

If there are any materials that are only available in the archives, you are welcome to come to the Valley Library 5th Floor Reading Room to request to view the materials you need; check out these helpful pages regarding our facilities and FAQs and visiting SCARC.
