Our New Search Tool: ArchivesSpace
The Archives has transitioned to a new catalog for our 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.

For best results, put AND, OR, or NOT between your keywords. For example: Marquette AND high AND school, Ishpeming OR Negaunee, or ski NOT jumping.
