Library News

  • The Minnebaloo--our special History Day-only research open house--is this Sunday, Jan. 21, 2018 from 12 to 4pm. Students are always welcome, but on this special day the Library will be open just for students. For more info, see our online Research Guide.

  • The Red Bull Crashed Ice event will impact roads and traffic near the History Center, especially on Friday (1/21) and Saturday (1/20) afternoons/evenings.  If you normally travel to the Library on John Ireland or on other streets around the Cathedral, you may want to plan an alternate route.   
  • We are excited to debut a subscription to ProQuest's Historic Minneapolis Tribune.  Available to onsite users, this database provides full-text searching for the newspaper from 1867 to 2001.  
  • Our two newest Research Guides are Alexander Ramsey & The Alexander Ramsey House and Taconite Mining: Technology, Taxes, & Tailings. Will one of these become more popular than last month's most popular guide: Vital Records: Marriage, Birth, & Death?
