The College Archives and Special Collections contain historical documents, papers, publications, photographs, media, and ephemera relating to NCCC. The materials document the history of the College since its founding in 1962. The NCCC Archives was founded in November 1982 as part of the College's 20th anniversary celebration. The purpose of the College Archives is to collect, preserve, and share the historical resources of Niagara County Community College.
