Special Collections is continually looking for new ways to facilitate access to our collections and to increasingly open the archives to members of the UB community, the Baltimore area, and the general public. Our digital initiatives include:
A mass-digitization project launched in 2006, Archives 24/7 aims to make as much of the department's archival collections available online as possible. To date, we have digitized 19 collections in their entirety.

Digital Collections @ UB
This digital library project places selected materials from the archives in an enhanced environment for discovery. These collection highlights often point to additional digitized material on our website.

Popular demand prompted us to create a dedicated webpage to allow alumni and friends of UB to explore the past through university yearbooks from 1928 to 1975.
