Collection Holdings

Kaye Hall FoyerCurrently, the Archives has two options for browsing our available collections:

Historical Manuscript Collection Finding Aids
Patrons may browse all historical manuscript collection finding aids alphabetically by collection title. Patrons may conduct subject, name, and keyword searches from the Lydia M. Olson Library's catalog. 

Our New Search Tool: ArchivesSpace
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.

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. It's a work in progress, so try it out. We will have a survey available soon to collect your feedback.
