The NDSU Archives is open for academic and public research; however we understand that our location and hours may not be convenient to everyone. Our collections are non-circulating, due to their age, fragility and rarity. For this reason we offer a fee based service for researchers who are unable to visit our facility. The staff at the archives reserves the right to refuse copying from our collections if it in doing so it will damage the original item, violate copyright laws, or the request is deemed unreasonable. Due to staff limitations, we are unable to conduct in depth research. Requests should be clear, concise and to the point. See our contact information to make a request from the Archives.
