Visit the UNCSA Archives Collections Database to explore UNCSA Archives collections through finding aids, detailed guides to each collection. You can learn more about navigating the Collections Database through two introductory videos below.
Some collections are not yet described in the Collections Database, or have only a general description; however, a full list of collections is available below. As Archives staff organize and describe collections, new finding aids will be added to the database.
Certain collections or items may not be accessible because they are unprocessed; for reasons related to the confidentiality of personnel, student, medical, and other legally protected records; or due to the format or fragile nature of the material. Read more about using Archives material and contact the Archives to discuss your area of interest.
Archives Collections are divided into two groups: Records Groups and Manuscript Collections.
Record Groups contain historical records of the school that have been transferred to the Archives from Schools and departments. Collections include meeting minutes, reports, correspondence, campus publications, sound and video recordings, event programs, photographs, and others.
Manuscript Collections include material related to and illustrating the history of the school and/or the creative and professional output of alumni and other performing artists with ties to UNCSA.
