Round the World with the University Archives

Printer-friendly versionSend by email

The word is out about the University Archives. Our exclusive “I found it at the NU Archives” T-shirts have left the campus and are being spotted in distant and exotic locales. And we are documenting their journeys! If you’re traveling this summer and taking your NU Archives T-shirt with you, send us a photo (front or back)! We’ll post it on our blog, and add it to a new photo gallery. Go to the end of this article to find out more about our TravelBlog.

In our first entry, the NUA T-shirt heads for the Highlands of Scotland.

Send your photo to:, with the subject line “TravelBlog.” Make sure to tell us when and where the photo was taken (it helps if there’s a recognizable or characteristic building, sign, monument, etc. in the picture), as well as your name and any other information you’d like to share about your trip.

We may offer a prize for most distant point or most unusual venue—if we can think of something other than a T-shirt to award! We’re working on it….

P.S. If you don’t have an NUA T-shirt but are planning to travel somewhere wonderful, stop by the Archives in Deering Library before you leave (you'll need to sign up for our mailing list, too).
