Frisk Collection of Covenant Literature
The Frisk Collection of Covenant Literature makes accessible hard-to-find materials that are considered to be key texts in the formation and growth of the Evangelical Covenant Church (ECC). Works cover a variety of themes such as theology, Bible, history, biography, education, spirituality, mission, and records of various institutions of the ECC. Many were originally written in Swedish and are available here along with their English translations. The original items digitized in this collection are cataloged in the Covenant Archives and Historical Library or in the general circulating collection of Brandel Library.
The collection is named in honor of Donald C. Frisk (1911-2010), a pastor in ECC and professor of theology (1945-1978) and dean (1961-1967) of North Park Theological Seminary, Chicago.
Historical Photograph Collection
The Historical Photograph Collection features select images of North Park University and the Evangelical Covenant Church from the Archives print collection of more than 30,000 images. The collection records the activities of the school and the denomination from 1885 to present.
The University's photographs depict North Park campus and its institutions, North Park Theological Seminary, North Park College, a Junior College prior to 1956 and University starting in 1997, and North Park Academy, which closed its doors in 1969. They feature individuals who helped shape the institution, events and traditions, buildings and campus architecture since its founding in 1891. Photographs of the Evangelical Covenant Church depict founders of the denomination, church members, leaders, missionaries, events, buildings, and activities both nationally and internationally.
North Park Press
The North Park Press is the student newspaper of North Park University. First published as the North Park College News in January 1922, its aim was to regularly communicate school news to alumni and the families and friends of students. The name changed to the North Park Press at the beginning of the 1997-98 academic year to reflect North Park’s new university status. Published continuously since its inaugural issue, the paper is a rich resource for campus news, student perspectives, alumni news, and local business advertisements.

The Swedish-American Historical Quarterly, an academic journal published continuously since 1950 by the Swedish-American Historical Society, is now available online. The title of the journal was The Swedish Pioneer Historical Quarterly from 1950 to 1983. Full of historic illustrations and substantial articles by researchers, noted authors, and leading academics, The Swedish-American Historical Quarterly documents and interprets the Swedish-American presence in North America.
