The NOVA History Collections includes commencement programs, annual reports, yearbooks, an oral history and other documents from the history of NOVA. Commencement programs include a list of graduates from each year as well as names of speakers. Annual reports from NOVA and the Virginia Community College System are sources of information about the community college system in its early days. NOVA published yearbooks with photos of students, faculty, staff and facilities from 1967 to 1969. In 1987, NOVA published Northern Virginia Community College: An Oral History 1965-1985. It included interviews with college administrators, Virginia elected officials, faculty and students.

This project was initiated in 2009 by David Anderson, a librarian at the Alexandria Campus Library.
