Explore college history through our archives and special collections.

Explore Our Vibrant History

The Archives & Special Collections bring history to life. You’ll find treasures such as college photos, building blueprints, botany books, gems from the Norbertine order and college records. Access to a variety of our rich materials is available electronically by visiting: 
  • Omeka: a digital record of some of the materials in the collection
  • Recollection Wisconsin: images and documents from St. Norbert College’s historic past
  • Library catalog: a directory of books available within the archives and the library at large
Many of the items do not circulate and aren’t available for viewing electronically yet due to their rarity or fragile nature. To explore these materials and others, stop in or set up a consultation to gain access to the reading room or the archival vault.
