Special Collections & Archives Office Has Moved!

The UB Special Collections & Archives office has moved to the first floor of the Learning Commons building! We’re excited to introduce our new space!

We are located in LC Office 104!

In December 2019, Special Collections & Archives closed for a few days as we packed and relocated our offices. We packed up our office supplies, coordinated moving archival collections and projects to storage, and watched as expert movers set up our new space. After a very successful move, we are now open and ready for researchers!

The Research Room is located to the right when you enter the Special Collections & Archives office

Our new office suite is located in LC 104, on the first floor of the Learning Commons, behind the Town Hall. Staff, researchers, student workers, interns, and volunteers are already enjoying the new office!

Have a question? Ask an archivist! Our Research Room has already been busy this semester.

Our new Research Room offers space for researchers using archival collections and provides viewing and listening equipment for patrons accessing audiovisual materials such as the Conrad Schafran Record Collection or items from the WMAR-TV Collection. The Research Room is also home to our collection of books focusing on local Baltimore history, UB yearbooks, and other publications focused on University of Baltimore history.
