história

In February 1992 informal discussions began regarding the establishment of an archives to preserve the University's history. In 1996 a committee drafted "The Plan for a UNBC Archives" that expanded on these ideas and outlined the need to establish an archives of Northern British Columbia that would preserve, acquire and provide access to public and private records related to the history and culture of Northern BC. Hence, the position of Archivist was created, and the Northern BC Archives was officially opened in November 2000. The Archives also houses rare book collections and maintains the University's artworks and artifact collections.
