Open Stacks is written by the staff of the F.M. Johnson Archives and Special Collections. The Archives, located in the lower level of Brandel Library, holds collections from the university, the Evangelical Covenant Church, and the Swedish-American Historical Society. Students and researchers from the public are welcome to use our collections. Visit the Archives website to learn more.
Because of their uniqueness, archives and special collections are kept in closed stacks. To bring them more to light, the Open Stacks blog features items from the collections, how to use the collections, and posts about research, events, and related topics.
