Central Upper Peninsula & NMU Archives

The Central Upper Peninsula and Northern Michigan University Archives houses the historical records of Northern Michigan University and historical materials documenting the history of the central Upper Peninsula of Michigan, including Alger, Delta, Dickinson, Marquette, Menominee and Schoolcraft counties.

Local and Regional Government Records

Northern Michigan University is a Local Government Records Depository for the state of Michigan. The Archives maintains and provides access to numerous county, municipal, and township records within the central Upper Peninsula. The Archives received a Wildcat Innovation Fund Grant in 2011 to fund the digitization of the minutes and agendas of the Marquette county and city of Marquette Board of Commissioners.

Regional Historical Manuscript Collections

The Archives is transitioning to a new catalog for its finding aids, ArchivesSpace. ArchivesSpace allows you to browse our collections by title, name of person or institution, or subject, and to search our descriptions of them by keyword.

The Cleveland-Cliffs Iron Mining Company Digitization project, funded by the National Historical Publications and Records Commission, focuses on three record series from the Cleveland-Cliffs Iron Mining Company collection.
