The LU Archives makes collections accessible to researchers, including faculty, staff, students, and alumni of Lawrence University and Milwaukee-Downer College, as well as visiting scholars and members of the general public. As a repository of unique materials on the Lawrence campus, the Archives also supports creative teaching and learning by serving as a laboratory for classes working with primary research materials.
