University or college archives serves as a keeper of the institutional memory. It is responsible for preserving and managing that institution's information resources in all media and formats (documents, photographs, maps, video and audio resources, artifacts).
Oregon Tech (OT) University Archives is the memory and the repository of its history.
Preserved records of the activities of its students, faculty, staff, administration and alumni demonstrate the effects all those individuals had on the making of OT.
The earliest materials in the Archives relate to the foundation of the University in 1947 on the Old Fort Road campus.
