Some material from the CU Boulder Libraries' archival collections has been digitized and is available for access on the CU Digital Library. These includes documents, diaries, photographs, maps, and media on a variety of topics. 

Keep in mind that the majority of our archival collections have not yet been digitized. Material on the CU Digital Library is usually a small curated portion of material from larger collections. If you see something on the Digital Library that interests you, there is often much more available to see in the archive. Search the name of the collection on our ArchivesSpace site to read more about the full collection.
