The UMD Archives include the official publications, photographs, memorabilia and non-current office records of the University of Minnesota Duluth. The Northeast Minnesota Historical Center Collections are a regional history resource for Duluth and Northeastern Minnesota including St. Louis, Lake, Cook and Carlton counties.
Other Special Collections include the Michael S.

If you would like to visit the Archives, come through the library's main entrance and proceed to your right where you will see a hanging glass sculpture with stairs and elevators - again to the right. Go up one level to the second floor and look toward your left for a ceiling sign directing you to the library annex.
