IMSA Archives

The IMSA Archives

The Archives serves IMSA and the larger community by collecting, preserving and making available materials relating to the history and ethos of the Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy.


Archives is located in the library on the 2nd floor of IMSA’s Main Building. It is open and staffed most Wednesdays from 10:00 to 3:00, when school is in session. Making an appointment is strongly recommended, though drop-ins are also welcome when the Archives is open. The Digital Collections are available any time.

  • Archives & Special Collections: Archives’ digital collections are accessible through IMSA’s institutional repository, DigitalCommons. These online collections contain a significant portion of the material currently in the physical collection, as well as content unique to DC.
  • Archives LibGuide: A user’s guide that includes general information, long-standing policies, updated procedures, and various ways to donate.
