North Park University Archives and Special Collections

The archival collections of North Park University are officially part of the Covenant Archives and Historical Library. Collections include the correspondence, minutes, and reports of various University departments, administrative offices, and committees. Personal papers of early leaders include manuscripts, correspondence, diaries, and other documentary material.

The Archives has extensive collections of indexed photos, some of which are available in an online digital photograph collection. Indexes of audio and video recordings and microfilmed records help document the activities of the institution.

The Archives attempts to maintain a complete collection of works published by the University and North Park authors (faculty, students, and administrators). Many titles are also available in the general circulating collection in Brandel Library.
