The Illinois College Archives and Iver F. Yeager Special Collections are dedicated to preserving the artifacts and documents that tell the story of our college since 1829. Housed within Schewe Library, collections are open to the public by appointment.
In 2009, a group of dedicated faculty and staff launched the IC Time Capsule Project to coordinate activities related to the history of Illinois College and the local community of Jacksonville. Thanks to the generosity of granting organizations, we have made significant progress in organizing our collections of documents, photographs, artifacts, and oral histories.
The Khalaf al Habtoor Archives at Illinois College (located on the lower floor of Schewe Library) are currently undergoing renovations. We expect the Archives to be up-and-running by October 2014. In the meantime, please use the left-hand tabs to visit the Archives’ social media outlets. If you need to contact us, please send us an email at Archives@mail.ic.edu
