Columbia University History Resources
The Columbia University Archives staff has put together some Research Guides to help you take advantage of our holdings. For each type of search, you will find the most popular resources available and how to access them: some online and some in person. The guides focus on alumni, faculty, course descriptions, Master's essays and dissertations, and buildings and grounds information.
Columbia College Today
Thanks to a gift from the board of the Columbia University Club Foundation, CCT and the Columbia University Libraries have recently digitized the back issues of this Columbia College alumni magazine from 1954 to 2016. These are now available on the Internet Archive. The issues have been indexed so you can easily search for articles, features and alumni news or just browse through the individual issues.
