Archives and the Exhibit

The Archival Services Staff and Faculty welcome you to an exhibit celebrating 125 years of history at the University of Northern Colorado.  The collections held by Archival Services document all aspects of campus history from our foundations as a Normal School in 1889 to the most recent State of the University address given by President Norton in September 2014.  The collections include over 4,000 linear feet of material, which translates into over 500,000 individual photographs, lanterns slides, negatives, 8mm films, minute books, scrapbooks, memos, letters and much more.  We have worked diligently to select images, documents and artifacts that represent different aspects of the University’s growth and development.  With limited space, we were forced to make difficult decisions about what items to include in the exhibit, but we hope that our choices provide a sense of the dynamic history of the institution. 

If you are interested in further exploring the history of UNC, we welcome any and all researchers to visit the Archival Services Department on the lower level of Michener Library.
