Established in 1975, the Archives serves as a repository for records documenting the history of Columbus State University and the greater Columbus region. Because of this dual mission, the Archives comprises two distinct collections; the Columbus State University Collection, and the Chattahoochee Valley Historical Collections.
The Archives are located on the Columbus State University campus, on the third floor of the Simon Schwob Memorial Library. Our holdings are open to all patrons conducting research, but please remember that our materials do not circulate. Reference assistance is available to help in determining which materials are appropriate for specific research projects. Patrons conducting intensive research projects are encouraged to contact the staff in advance.
