The Northern State University Archives and Special Collections are home to collections documenting the history of NSU and the surrounding region. Archives staff members are committed to the preservation of historically significant materials that document the area's rich and vibrant history. Rare books, photographs, documents, artifacts, and digital resources are all available to interested researchers. The subjects and content vary, but most have a South Dakota or Northern State connection. Our large book collection relates to South Dakota history, American Indian history, local and regional history, and the history of Northern State University. We also have a collection of books by South Dakota authors, including fiction and nonfiction, as well as a small collection of rare books.

Our digital library contains scans and images of selected items in our collections. Although at present they represent only small pieces of the complete collections, the digital collections offer a general overview of the kinds of items that can be found in the physical collection. These online collections will grow over time as additional materials are digitized. Currently, featured materials can be accessed in our Collections tab. For more collections, you can browse or search the complete digital collection on our ContentDM site.
