Archives and Special Collections are open by appointment only, limited to UMN affiliates. Appointments must be made one week in advance of your visit. Contact ascref@umn.edu or the curator of the collecting area you wish to use for assistance. We continue to provide scans of requested research materials when possible, especially for our non-campus clientele.

Finding Aids

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 online 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 to help in research are commission name (first owner or original building name), architect, and address (house number, street name, city, state).

Researchers can email the Northwest Architectural Archives at fong0022@umn.edu for further information about their topic.
