Using Our Collections

Start Your Research

We can help you get started with your research by email or phone ( or 218-726-8526) and set up an appointment for you to use materials onsite. If you are unable to visit the archives in person, we may be able to locate and scan a limited number of materials for you.

Archives Hours Available by Appointment

Contact us at or 218-726-8526 to set up an appointment. Appointments are scheduled Monday - Friday between 9:00 am and 3:00 pm. 

Please let us know if you are a current UMD student, staff, or faculty member who needs archival materials for a class or work related project as we will prioritize those requests.

Due to COVID related closures for much of 2020 and 2021, you might not be able to get an appointment right away. We are working through a backlog of requests. Thank you for your patience.
