The J. Glenn Beall Archives at Frostburg State University are located on the fourth floor of the Lewis J. Ort Library. The archives are the repository for four major collections. All materials are non-circulating. In 2001, Senator J. Glenn Beall Jr. and his mother, Margaret Beall, endowed the archives with a gift of $100,000. The facility was constructed in 2001, using an existing area of the Lewis J. Ort Library, and consists of a research room, processing room, and storage area. The archives dedication ceremony was held in October of 2002.
