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


A Tretter Zine (2020)

In "Blackout Records: A Taphonomy of Queer Addiction," Tretter staff member Jesse Eisenmann reflects on their experience searching for stories of kin, loss, and queer love across generations within the Tretter's archival holdings, and proposes a paleontology of archival memory.
