MSUM Archives

The Minnesota State University Moorhead (MSUM) Archives is comprised of two repositories: the University Archives and the Northwest Minnesota Historical Center. The University Archives is the official repository of MSUM documenting the history of the University. The Northwest Minnesota Historical Center (NMHC) is a regional repository for the twelve county region of northwest Minnesota.

MSUM Archives is located on the fourth floor of the Livingston Lord Library.


The mission of the MSUM Archives is to appraise, collect, organize, describe, and preserve documentation of the history of Minnesota State University Moorhead and northwest Minnesota; to provide reference assistance to MSUM administrators, faculty and staff, students, alumni, and off-campus researchers; and to make collections visible through finding aids, webpages, exhibits, and social media.
