Archives Digitization Projects
Select materials from the University Archives and Southern Minnesota Historical Center have been digitized in an effort to make these valuable resources more broadly available to researchers, genealogists, Minnesota State University, and the community.
The University Archives @ Minnesota State University, Mankato has created a Flickr Group so photos and videos related to the University can be shared. We will be posting some of our historic university photographs and current photos of the Archives and Library Services. Our goal for this group is to share and preserve the history of the University. Please consider sharing your Maverick experience.
