Fax: 651-296-9961

The Collections Management Department organizes the Society's collection of books, periodicals, state archives, manuscripts, maps, photographs, newspapers, films and videos, sound recordings, works of art, and newspapers, and creates tools such as catalogs and inventories that help our patrons locate and use materials in these collections. You can search the Society's collections using the library's catalog MnPALS, the finding aids index or Collections Online.
