2023 Research Systems Update

The MNHS website is undergoing necessary updates that will impact some users in the short-term.

Collections Online: Access to Collections online is temporarily unavailable for remote and in-person researchers. We will provide updates as they become available.

Minnesota People Records Search: We are addressing issues related to the implementation of a new interface and back-end system. We expect those issues to be resolved quickly.

Finding Aids: Finding aids can be accessed in several different ways. Visit our Searching Finding Aids guide for information.

Other tools: Access to other research tools–including the Minnesota Newspaper Hub, and Research Guides–will not be impacted by these updates.

We understand this temporary disruption will be an inconvenience, and our team will be available to help during this period. For research help or other questions please contact our library at 651-259-3300 or reference@mnhs.org. Please leave your name and email address to receive automated updates.
