The Special Collections and Archives Department of McIntyre Library collects the official and unofficial records of the UW-Eau Claire from its founding as the Eau Claire Normal School in 1916 to the present. As one of 14 members of the Wisconsin Historical Society's Area Research Center Network, the department also holds manuscript collections and local government records pertaining to six Wisconsin counties: Buffalo, Chippewa, Clark, Eau Claire, Rusk and Taylor. In addition to these collections, the department holds and provides access to local history publications and more.

The Special Collections and Archives Department is available to assist with your research needs. If you are unable to visit us in person, we encourage students and public researchers to submit requests to us using the request form or chat service links below. To the greatest extent possible we hope to fulfill the research needs of all researchers remotely by providing information and digitized copies of relevant research materials.
