Oregon Multicultural Archives (OMA)

The Oregon Multicultural Archives assists in preserving the histories and sharing the stories that document Oregon's African American, Asian American, Latino/a, and Native American communities. Established in 2005, the OMA’s diverse collections reflect how these communities have contributed to the identity of the state of Oregon.

Check out the OMA Blog for up-to-date information regarding current projects, new collections, recently digitized materials, and much more.

OSU Queer Archives (OSQA)

The mission of the OSU Queer Archives (OSQA) is to preserve and share the stories, histories, and experiences of LGBTQ+ people within the OSU and Corvallis communities. Established in 2014, OSQA’s mission is rooted in three central commitments: 1) fostering intersectional community activism, 2) resisting erasure of queer and trans narratives, and 3) positioning the collection as a space to imagine alternative futures for LGBTQ+ communities and people
