As we move toward the 150th anniversary of Virginia Tech, this guide brings together known resources from campus and the larger community on the history of the university. This guide will be updated as new projects are completed, new materials digitized, and new resources published. Whether you are working on a project and looking for resources, want to share your finished product, or just want to know more about Virginia Tech history, we encourage you to look through this guide.
If you have suggestions for collections of sources, completed projects, published items, or other materials relating to Virginia Tech's history, please contact the manager of this guide, Kira Dietz (email@example.com or 540-231-3810), Assistant Director, Special Collections and University Archives. In addition, if you have materials related to the history of the university that you would like to donate to Special Collections and University Archives, we want to hear from you!
