The UIC ARCHIVES is the official repository for records with permanent, historical value from the University of Illinois at Chicago and its predecessor institutions.  We hold material from the establishment of the Chicago College of Pharmacy in 1859 to the present day.  In addition to the records of the colleges, departments, campus units, and student organizations, the UIC ARCHIVES also includes selected professional and personal manuscripts of faculty, staff, and alumni that have been given to the University for preservation and use.  Housed in both the Richard J. Daley Library (UIC ARCHIVES-East) and the Library of the Health Sciences-Chicago (UIC ARCHIVES-West), the UIC ARCHIVES is a unit within the University Library’s Special Collections and University Archives Department.
