The Luther College Archives collects, organizes, preserves, promotes, and makes available records of enduring historical, legal, administrative, and fiscal value. We collect materials that relate to the history of the college, including official records from Luther College's departments and offices, faculty, students, alumni, and other supporters of the college; items from individuals and organizations that relate to the Norwegian Synod and Synod related churches and organizations associated with the founding of Luther College; and materials from organizations with a relationship to Lutheranism in the United States. The Luther College Archives strives to offer quality collections that are easily accessible and that offer a transparent snapshot of our history.
All of the archival holdings have been organized into 20 record groups and follow an arrangement of series and sub-series. Finding aids are keyword searchable in Nordic, our online catalog (http://nordic.luther.edu/).
Every action in the Luther College Archives revolves around preserving the Luther College memory, which means special care must be used by patrons accessing any of the original materials in the collection. If patron use will result in publication or any other commercial purpose, please see the College Archivist for proper citation requirements and copyright restrictions.
