A central part of the AHC's mission is to make make our holdings accessible to all. Our diverse collections support casual inquiry and international scholarship alike. And most importantly, we play an active role in the teaching and research missions of the university.
There are many ways we make our holdings accessible. Our archivists, as members of the University of Wyoming faculty, are available to teach bibliographic instruction and historical methods courses to students from UW, as well as elementary, junior, and high school students from around the state.
Wyoming History Day is the state affiliate of National History Day, the nation's premier education enrichment program for elementary and secondary school students. The state program is administered by the the AHC and the state contest is held at the AHC every spring.
The AHC extends the reach of its holdings through both virtual and traveling exhibits, as well as several permanent exhibits on display in the Centennial Complex.
A variety of public symposia, book signings, and lectures are presented every year at the AHC.
