Materials ArchivesHelp preserve the history of writing centers .. .
The Writing Centers Research Project at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock has established an archive--spoken memories and written records of writing center history--to preserve writing center history and facilitate scholars' research. The WCRP has begun interviewing those instrumental in creating and directing early writing centers, as well as those active in regional and national organizations and in early publications on writing centers.
You may search our Writing Centers archive to see materials we currently hold. A list of oral histories we have conducted is also available. (see oral history list). Please contact the WCRP staff if you are a researcher who would like access to any of these materials.
Donate materials to the WCRP Writing Center archives
In our effort to create a comprehensive archive of written, audio, and visual materials, we invite donations for the archival collection. Before you discard materials related to your writing center's history, please consider donating them to the WCRP archives. Those willing to donate materials may mail them to the WCRP or make other arrangements with the WCRP to submit them. Your tax-deductible donations will be acknowledged by return mail, and the Research Project will reimburse mailing costs where requested.
Below, we provide a list of materials that the
WCRP hopes to collect during the initial phase of the archival project.
If you are interested in donating materials, please complete the form below,
and a member of the WCRP staff will contact you as soon as possible to
