The University of Northern Colorado Libraries contains thousands of primary sources. These can be found in the Archives and Special Collections, by searching the library catalog, or online in Digital UNC and a variety of databases. Each tab contains more information and instructions.
The UNC Archives and Special Collections contains a variety of primary sources documenting the history of the university, James A. Michener, alumni such as Connie Willis, faculty members, and individuals, organizations, and communities in northern Colorado. Archival collections contain a broad range of material such as correspondence, meeting minutes, notebooks, and photographs. Each collection is described in its own finding aid, which is a guide with information about what the collection contains, how large it is, where the material came from, pertinent access restrictions, and much more. The amount of information varies in each finding aid, and more is added regularly. You can search finding aids through a database called ArchivesSpace.
For more information about searching archival collections, please see the UNC Archives and Special Collections website.
