The archives seeks to centralize access to all university publications, minutes, and reports relating to the Lindenwood St. Charles, Missouri and Lindenwood Belleville, Illinois campuses. Currently, the archives contains approximately 800 linear feet of records.
The primary goal of the Mary E. Ambler Archives is to be a tool that Lindenwood faculty and students will find useful in the research of institutional and regional topics. The archives intends to make additional resources available in the future to Missourians and researchers abroad by making content accessible through digitization.
