The UAB Archives is the official repository for the permanent records of the University and for archival collections held by UAB.  In addition to institutional records, the UAB Archives collects personal papers of private individuals and records created by organizations that place in a broader context UAB's role as a leader in the state and in the health sciences or as a comprehensive urban university.

Manuscript Collections include the personal papers of UAB faculty and staff, of the state's healthcare and research professionals, and of organizations or entities associated with UAB or one of the university's constituent communities.

As they are processed and made available, each manuscript collection is assigned a sequential identification number.

The following is a list of manuscript collections, arranged by the collection identification number, contained in the UAB Archives.  For an alphabetical list of the manuscript collections, please select Alphabetical List. For a listing of manuscript collections by subject categories, please select Subjects List.

A brief overview of the collections may be found by selecting the links below.  A more detailed description of each manuscript collection, including series scope and contents, history, and folder-level inventory, is available in the UAB Archives.
