The Hammond campus Archives and Special Collections (ASC) invites you on a trip to the past, so set a date to visit our brand new reading room in the near future! Room C236, Located in SULB, provides patrons with an opportunity to glimpse into PNW (formerly known as Purdue University Calumet) and Regional history with documents, artifacts and books abound. The addition includes new seating and table space to spread out all of the “old news” contained within ASC. We will be arranging many of our special collections in this new area so you can see how members of our campus’s faculty have continued to keep it classy for generations to come.
Navigate your way to us and check out the handcrafted display case featuring publications of peculiar paramount from acclaimed academic historians and educators such as William MacLure, the father of American geology, Arthur Bestor, and Charles A. Prosser. Our Region history items do well in preserving and portraying the annals of Northwest Indiana- from the frontier to the industrial age and beyond, there is always an article available for the Hoosiers at heart. We’re only lending an abstract idea of the services ASC has to offer, but we’ll reserve a spot for you to reference us at your convenience!
