The Archives Has Moved!

Why did the Archives move?

In 2021, the Wisconsin State Legislature approved the demolition of Albertson Hall due to major structural issues with the building. A new building will be constructed on the Albertson Hall site. As a result, all departments had to vacate the building to make room for the new facility.

Where did the Archives move to?

The Archives moved just one building north! Our new temporary location is in the Trainer Natural Resources (TNR) Building (the building with the large mural), at 800 Reserve Street: just inside the southeast doors, room 110. Because our collections are stored both on- and off-site, research appointments are now required to ensure materials are available.

How can I make a research appointment?

Appointments are required to ensure we can have research materials available on-site. Appointment times are available Monday - Friday, 10 a.m. - Noon & 1 - 4:30 p.m. Email or call 715-346-2586 to make an appointment. Same-day appointments may not be available if requested materials are stored off-site.

What collections are still available for use?

All our collections are still available to request to view, though it will take longer to prepare materials for researchers. All digital collections are still available to view.

What does the temporary space entail?

Apart from our change of location, our researchers enjoy a similar research experience. During research appointments, our reference desk will be available for researchers to check in, and tables will be available for collections use. Flatbed scanners, our microfilm reader, and research computers will also be available.
