The University Archives is open Monday through Friday 8-12 and 1-4.
Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic and to protect the health of our researchers and staff, the University Archives and Southern Minnesota Historical Center is available by appointment only.
If you are looking for information from our collections, we highly encourage you to view our digital collections in ARCH. ARCH contains a wealth of digitized photographs, yearbooks, oral histories, the complete school newspaper, the Reporter back to 1926, and more. Additionally, you can view our archival collection guides.
The University Archives and Southern Minnesota Historical Center is located on the 2nd floor of the Memorial Library on the north side of the Marilyn J. Lass Center for Minnesota Studies. Archives staff are available to help.
