About the University Archive
The University Archive was established as a repository to preserve primary resources about Tiffin University's campus history. As such, the Archive does not contain "exhibits" similar to what would be shown in a museum, but materials cataloged through the Archive are displayed across campus in various buildings.
Located in the lower level of Pfeiffer Library, the University Archive is available to members of the university community for research-related inquiry by appointment only. Articles about select resources found in the archive can be found in the library's Flashback Friday posts on the blog. To pull up all posts related to the archive, use the blog search box and type in "Flashback Friday." Some items in the collection have also been digitized and can be found through the Seneca County Digital Library and the Ohio Memory Project.
Our archive is a work in progress. If you'd like to schedule an appointment to view the contents of the archive, use the contact information on this page to call or email the library. Appointments must be scheduled at least 1 business day in advance of the visit. Visitors will be accompanied by a librarian and must abide by the policies of the archive noted in this guide.
