Where can you find aerial photos of campus, past faculty pictures, retro fashions, and a picture of the ECC Dating Game, circa 1976? The ECC College Archives, of course!  Elgin Community College has a large archive collection, part of which is available to you online. Items are added continually, and the Archives are accessed thousands of times each year.

Use the BROWSE feature to go through the entire online collection, or search by title, subject or a key word.  You can even sign up for an RSS feed so you are alerted when new photos are added! For more information, see the Archives website. Please consult with the Archival Librarian, Armando Trejo (814-214-7141) to make arrangements for the materials to be retrieved from storage. Archive materials may only be used in the library.
