Our collections are available for use by our campus and wider community. In Tate Archives and Special Collections, patrons have the assistance of University Archivist Meg Miner to help with research.
If you aren't sure if we have what you're searching for, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (309) 556-1535 for more information.
We rely on the generosity of donors to build our research and special collections. If you have historically significant manuscripts, photographs, books, archival materials or other items that you believe would enhance our collections, please contact Meg Miner.
