Osaka University Archive Repository

The Archive Repository Preparation Office set up on July 1, 2006, was reorganized into the Osaka University Archives on October 1, 2012. The Archives aim to ensure university's smooth operation and contribute to education, research, and social cooperation by conducting surveys and research for the management of official documents at Osaka University and collecting and organizing documents on the history of Osaka University. To this end, there are two sections in the archives: a section handling official documents and a section for handling documents regarding the history of the university. Documents stored at the repository will be open to the public from the 2013 ~ 2014 academic year.
