Archive & Special Collections

The Archive and Special Collections at the Frank Ritchel Ames Memorial Library's Colorado Campus houses a growing number of print resources. The library at  RVU makes the collection of timely, accurate, functional and practical materials one of its highest priorities. It is the vision of the library staff to ensure the availability of any materials, whether directly or secondarily necessary for the successful completion or teaching of coursework. With this goal in mind, all reasonable efforts to acquire materials will be made.

A certain selection of our archived documents are not represented online. 

The following collections have yet to be digitized:

  • Academic Affairs 
  • Accreditation Committee and High Learning Committee 
  • Admissions 
  • Facilities 
  • Finance, Administration, and Management
  • Human Resources
  • Library Memorabilia
