West Liberty University has a collection of various documents and artifacts that show an evolution from a “Normal school” (or teaching school) to the university it is today. Some of these artifacts are typewriters, antique microscopes, and even a letterman sweater. The library staff has been hard at work collecting newspaper articles and scrapbooking them together. These are available for research by appointment. There are voice recordings of interviews done in the 1970s with Great Depression survivors, prints of etchings from all over Europe, and one of the very first maps of West Liberty. Feel free to contact a librarian for access to the archives.
