Library Begins Archival of Photos 1968 to Current

The UW-BSC Library has begun a massive undertaking of archiving all past campus photos. The photos date back to 1968 when the UW-Baraboo/Sauk County campus was founded. This archival process is expected to take about a year to complete. In order to facilitate this process the library is asking for help from former students and faculty in identifying alumni and campus events from previous years.
