Welcome to the Northern BC Archives Database

Northern BC Archives logo

This Archives Database provides descriptive information about the archival holdings maintained by Northern BC Archives at the University of Northern British Columbia.

Our Mandate

The Northern BC Archives & Special Collections acquires, preserves, and provides access to materials of permanent value that relate to the institutional history of UNBC and the culture and history of Northern British Columbia. We serve research and scholarship by making these records available to researchers, students, faculty, and the general public.
