2 I do not live in Missouri and cannot come to the Archives to do research. How can I conduct research from afar?
3 I have found a photograph I am interested in. However, I cannot seem to view the image on your website. Why?
4 I have previously worked for the University. Can you verify my employment there?
5 I am looking for the current contact information of a person I went to school with. Can I get the information from the University Archives?
6 I have documents or other materials related to the University of Missouri. How do I transfer or donate these materials to the University Archives?
1 No. The University Archives is often mistakenly contacted for
enrollment and registration information, especially concerning transcripts
and diploma replacement. Please contact the UMC Registrar's Office (Enrollment
Services/Registration) for such information requests. Beyond regular UMC
transcripts, the Registrar's Office also has Laboratory School transcripts
as well as Distance Education transcripts before 1980.
2 Due to staff and resource limitations, the Archives' staff cannot
conduct extensive research for patrons. Staff is often limited to an hour
or two of searching for one particular patron. There is an option to hire
UMC students at an hourly rate to conduct research for you.
3 The Archives has thousands of photographs and negatives in its
holdings, so only a very small amount have been scanned and digitized.
What you found from the website is merely a description of the holdings;
the image itself is not available online.
4 No. Individuals may get verification of employment with the University by contacting the Human Resource Services front desk:
5 No. We can verify what year a particular individual graduated
from the University; however, current contact information cannot be given
6 For information on how to transfer documents from a department to the University Archives or donate personal material related to the University of Missouri to the University Archives, please follow the links below:
7 Archival material cannot be checked out. Once you have found
documents or records you are interested in looking at, arrangements must
be made with the staff of University Archives to retrieve the materials
and to set up a time to view them in the Reading Room.
