Over the course of the Sesquicentennial, the University of Illinois Archives will be launching several projects to highlight the diverse voices, stories, and memories of the University of Illinois. These projects include:
A new portal that employs a multilayered approach to telling the history of the university within an overarching narrative that integrates the idea of place via maps, 3D imagery, and archival content.
This bibliography aggregates the history of the University of Illinois through publications written about all three campuses: Urbana-Champaign, Chicago, and Springfield. The bibliography includes publications from the following categories: General Histories; Histories of Colleges, Departments, and Divisions and Programs; Autobiographies and Biographies; Articles and Book Chapters; Photographic Histories and Essays; Theses and Dissertations; Directories; University as Fiction; and Un-categorized Reference.
A new portal being developed by the University of Illinois Archives that will enable users to interface with the many stories captured by Archives staff that highlight the many facets of student, faculty, and staff life at the University. Interviews cover such subjects as the Great Depression, World War II, student activism, and scientific and technological research at the University. Coming soon!
