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 ascref@umn.edu 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.

 

Finding aids are descriptive guides or inventories that have been created by the archivist to provide information about the contents of the collections.

The finding aids listed on this page cover the majority of the collections in the Northwest Architectural Archives. Some collections do not have finding aids, while others may not contain detailed contents. This indicates that the collection is either unprocessed or partially processed, and not available for research.

Key search terms are: commission name (first owner or original building name), architect, and address (house number, street name, city, state).

We urge researchers to email the Northwest Architectural Archives (fong0022@umn.edu) for further information about their topic.
