North Dakota State University Archives and Institute for Regional Studies reopens

It's always a good thing when a great research place stays open. It's sad when one is closed, even temporarily. In the case of the Institute for Regional Studies and the North Dakota State University Archives, that temporarily closed is now in the past. It has reopened in a new location.

I noted the announcement in the Forum of Fargo-Moorhead's March 29th online edition. The article gives a good overview of the collections. It also says "It isn’t easy to find the new location of the North Dakota State University Archives. Stashed out in the old Knox Lumber Co. warehouse at 3551 7th Ave. N., it’s the last right turn before Interstate 29 on Seventh Avenue."

I used to spend a lot of time researching at the Institute when it was located in the university's main library. What a wealth of information for North Dakota and also for some families along the North Dakota and Minnesota border.
