What is the College Archive and what is in it?

The Byro Family Archives room in the Kish Library houses all of Kish's physical archive materials.  The College Archives materials do not leave the Library and are non-circulating.  You may view the archives upon request. You may also browse digital collections of some of our materials in the KC Digital Archives.

The purpose of the Kishwaukee College Archives is to collect, organize and preserve the history of Kishwaukee College. The Library collects digital and print documents, photographs, and ephemera. The Archives shall include, but not be limited to, the following:  bulletins, newsletters and class schedules, minutes of the Board of Trustees, minutes of College committees and student organizations, newspaper clippings related to the college and college-sponsored events, copies of the college student newspaper, annual reports, architectural drawings and blueprints, photographs, slides and oral histories of events and people who have contributed to the development and character of Kishwaukee College.
