Record Group Collections

Serving as the institutional memory of Indiana University of Pennsylvania, the Record Group (RG) collections document the fascinating history of IUP from its creation as Indiana State Normal School in 1875 to the present day.

Record Groups include information generated by campus offices, departments, and the unions represented at the university. These collections include the Council of Trustees; President's Office; Office of the Registrar; Center for Student Life, Student Leadership, and Greek Life; Penn Student Newspaper; Office of Alumni Relations; College of Fine Arts; and University Senate. Browse IUP Publications including alumni magazines, catalogs, commencement programs, IUP history, serials, student handbooks, and yearbooks. Search for photographs and scrapbooks. Examine memorabilia including pennants, photographs, postcards, programs, and sports regalia. Digital recordings include the 1936 Commencement Procession
