About the Archives

The University Archives preserve Augsburg's legacy and make its historical information available to students, faculty, staff, alumni, and researchers. The archives include information related to the university's history and provide limited information about administrators, faculty, staff, and alumni. Please note: the University Archives include text, images, and recordings that may contain offensive and disturbing content that does not reflect the current mission or values of Augsburg University.

The library also houses special collections that include Augsburg's permanent art collection, the Nordic Music Collection, and resources on the history of Norwegian-American Lutheranism.

Due to staff limitations, the Archives and Special Collections are available by appointment only.
