Lone Star College-North Harris Archives


The Lone Star College-North Harris Library has been acquiring documents to preserve the institutional history of Lone Star College-North Harris for over 20 years. These materials were gathered by library personnel with the intent of adding an archives when space and funds permitted. In 2000 when the library moved into its current building, the library staff and the director decided to organize and catalog the gathered material for easier access.

Lone Star College System and North Harris celebrated their 30th anniversary in 2003. A traveling exhibit of some of the material gathered plus recently acquired items was displayed at all the System campuses during the 2003-2004 school year.

 Information and access to the materials can be obtained by making an appointment. Please call the Reference Desk at the NHC library; 281-618-5707. The Archives contains the following items. As material is properly accessioned, it will be added.
