Welcome to the North Central College Archives!

Our purpose is to "collect to connect." We collect and take care of materials relating to the history of North Central College, Shimer College, and the western suburbs in order to help you connect with and understand the past. 

The North Central College Archives is open for on-site research by appointment. Read our hours and visitor policy. Remote reference assistance is available at (630) 637-5714 or archives@noctrl.edu.
