Archives and Special Collections


Welcome to Chicago State University’s Archives, Special Collections, and Records Management Department, or ARMS.

ARMS is responsible for both preserving the historical record of the University and providing systematic control over the University's records from creation to final disposition.

I invite you to visit the Archives web site where you will discover information about our print and digital collections, CSU history, our past and upcoming exhibits/programs and much more.

If you are a member of the CSU community the records management link will lead you to basic information on depositing, retrieving and destroying records that have passed their legal retention period.

Please come back and visit often.
