Researchers interested in the history of intercollegiate athletics should check the University Archives' photo and publications indices under specific sports or surnames.  Additional information can be found at the Sports Information Office.

A second series in these records documents Women's Athletics at Northern.  Team events are documented in a collection of score books and media guides for basketball, field hockey, golf, gymnastics, soccer, softball, tennis, and volleyball.  Social and sports events are recorded in  scrapbooks from the Women's Athletic Association, the Women's Recreation Association, and Delta Psi Kappa (Alpha Lambda chapter), the Physical Education professional women’s honorary society.  More information on the history of women's athletics at Northern can be found in the Student Papers and Student Activities records series.
