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. For instance, we have O.M. Norlie's 1918 compilation of 6,000 historic churches, which modern scholars find is a rich source of genealogical information. You can access both volumes online of Norske Lutherske Menigheter i Amerika from this handy translation guide.
