Research Systems Update

Collections Online: Please visit our new Collections Online portal to search for digitized photos, oral histories, and 3-D objects. This beta version features more information on each record, a saved search history, and responsive web design that works seamlessly on tablets and smartphones.

Minnesota People Records Search: This system searches birth, death, state census, and other records related to individuals. It is available to both in-person and distance researchers, and we are addressing issues related to the implementation of a new interface and back-end system. 

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

For research help, please contact us at 651-259-3300 or or ask in person anytime the Library is open.
