Give to the Immigration History Research Center Archives

Until further notice, the University of Minnesota Libraries Archives and Special Collections are open by appointment only and appointments are limited to UMN affiliates. Appointments must be made one week in advance of your visit to enable us to page and quarantine collection materials before use.

Please contact for assistance or, if known, the curator of the collecting area you wish to use. We will continue to provide scans of requested research materials whenever possible, especially for our non-campus clientele.


We welcome your financial support! Your gift to this important general fund will help us continue our work of leadership and outreach in the area of archival work regarding im/migration and refugee archives, and to preserve, process, and digitize the material we provide access to.

If you'd like to donate to one of our nine ethnically-specific funds, or are interested in donating archival or library material, please contact the Curator. Thank you for your support!
