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.

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.

The Augsburg University Digital Archives were developed and are supported by PALS using the Islandora digital asset management system.

Please note: historical information contained in the archives reflect the time in which that information was originally published; it does not necessarily represent Augsburg University's contemporary mission, beliefs, or values.
