Archives of the Upstate
Archives of the Upstate, supports the University’s mission by serving as an official and final repository for historical records in designated areas of regional history. The Archives collects, houses, preserves and interprets primary source materials from the greater upstate area and makes its materials available to scholars, researchers, students, and individuals in the community interested in the designated areas of the collection.
The Library seeks to collect materials for the Archives of the Upstate in four subject areas: Medicine and healthcare, Education, Religion, and Military History. The materials are directly related to the ten counties of upstate South Carolina: Abbeville, Anderson, Cherokee, Greenville, Greenwood, Laurens, Oconee, Pickens, Spartanburg and Union.
Possible examples of materials collected include books, documents, personal papers, diaries, ledgers, newspapers, magazines, maps, works of art, and photographs, etc. Related memorabilia and artifacts will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
