University Archives at Delaware State University

The Delaware State University is helping to provide access to archival information for Delaware residents.

Are you looking for archival material from the state of Delaware? The Delaware State University Library can help! 

Anyone can access the Delaware State University Archives! You don't have to be a DSU faculty member, student, or alumni. How you can visit the DSU archives:

1) In Person - The archives office is open Monday through Friday from 8:00am until 4:00pm with the exception of a lunch hour from 12:00pm until 1:00pm. While walk-ins are always welcome, calling ahead to set up an appointment is highly recommended. This will ensure that your visit does not coincide with a conflict in the archivist's schedule.  It will additionally allow the archivist time to locate your requested materials.

2) By Email - If you are unable to visit the Delaware State University Campus in Dover, you are welcome to submit a reference request via the library's email ([email protected]).  The archivist will describe the materials and collections pertinent to your request.  She can make a small number of records available to you by scanning them and forwarding them to an email address. 

3) By Phone - You may also call at 302-857-6191.

In order to give your request the fullest consideration, the University Archivist will acknowledge your initial reference request within 1 business day.  However, it may take up to  3 days to fulfill your request. Many collections are currently unprocessed and require extenuated periods of time to search.  Your patience is appreciated.
