What we Preserve

From a Babylonian clay tablet created in 2,000 B.C. to a blog post you made 10 minutes ago, the UNT Libraries’ are committed to the preservation of information of all formats.

Every day you record information about your life– in electronic documents, digital photographs and digital video. However, unlike a clay tablet, these digital artifacts will not survive in the long term unless we take immediate steps to preserve them.

How you can Help

Help us build the archive of the future by preserving a piece of your digital life—whatever that may be. You can submit anything from a selfie on your first day of class to a video on your graduation day. Archivists will review submissions of digital photos, documents, and short videos for preservation in the University Archive and UNT Digital Library.

Submitting materials to Keeper is easy. Follow the Keeper link below, and simply drag and drop files from your desktop, or upload files directly from your mobile device. Once files are added to the app, tell us a little about who you are and what you are contributing to the archive.

Materials added to the University Archive and UNT Digital Library will be part of a growing research collection of publicly accessible, digital archival materials.

Terms and Conditions

Your contribution to the University Archive is subject to the terms and conditions of the UNT Libraries Gift Agreement. By uploading files, you agree to these terms and conditions. Following your submission, an archivist will contact you to provide additional information about your submission.
