The Ringenberg Archives and Special Collections (RASC) was established gradually through the 1950’s in the basement of what was formerly the University's library and is now Ayres Alumni Memorial Hall. The Zondervan Library was completed in 1986, and the University Archives gained an official facility. The RASC is climate-controlled for preservation and includes enhanced security and fire suppression measures.
The RASC serves the University by supporting administrative and academic programs. It also promotes the research of Taylor University's heritage by students, faculty, staff, alumni, historians, and the general public.
