Abstract:

The Minnesota State University, Mankato Catalogue Collection consists of catalogues, which describe departments, courses, and University procedures. The Collection has catalogues that date back to the State Normal School.

Historical note:

The MSU Catalogue describes class courses and completion requirements for current and potential students.  The Catalogs were initially called Catalogues.  In 1912 the Post Office began to charge a fee for mailing Catalogs due to the Post Office Appropriations Act of August 24, 1912. As a result of the act, the college began to label the Catalogues as School Progress because the State Teachers College was afforded a special rate by the Post Office for mailing this periodical pursuant to the War Revenue Act of October 3, 1917. This explains why some years are given volumes and numbers. In the Finding Aid and the Collection, Catalogue, School Progress, and Bulletin are sometimes used interchangeably.

The Graduate Bulletins and General Education and Cultural Diversity Bulletins are also included in this collection. These specialized publications were added over the years.

Current academic bulletins are available on the MSU website.
