The web site of the Columbia College Chicago Archives is now live! Here's an introduction to the Archives from our College Archivist, Heidi Marshall:
Who were Columbia’s past presidents? Has the school always been known as Columbia College Chicago? How does one best preserve digital images? A strange string of questions but answers to them share a common home. Check out the Columbia College Chicago Archives pages for answers!
The Archives, established in 2005, houses the historic records of the College on the second floor of the Library. Seeking a course catalog from the 1940s? Trying to find an article that appeared in the Columbia Chronicle in the 1980s? The College Archives has them!
Browse the pages, find out the history, read articles written by Columbia’s founders, and learn how to protect your own collection. And, as always, if there are questions, just drop us a line: collegearchives @ colum.edu. Enjoy!
