The Reuther Library is also the home of the Wayne State University Archives, established by the Board of Governors in 1958 in recognition of the importance and permanent value of the University's official files, records, and documents.


The Reuther Library, Archives of Labor and Urban Affairs is open to all researchers and no appointments will be required.
