COVID-19 Update

Augustana College has moved to Alert Level 3. The Swenson Center is open for limited onsite research by appointment only. We are happy to offer virtual appointments as an alternative to visiting. Appointments (onsite or virtual) may be requested by emailing swensoncenter@augustana.edu.

Virtual Appointments We recommend that you seek assistance remotely. Appointments can be scheduled with our volunteers or staff members for both genealogy and academic research assistance. We’re happy to provide scans and photocopies when possible. We’re also able to arrange virtual visits for classes. 


Onsite Appointments Visitors will need to:

  • Request an appointment at least 2 business days in advance

  • Wear a mask

  • Practice physical distancing 

  • Wash hands immediately prior to entering

  • Be limited to one individual/couple per appointment

  • Be limited to 1 hour

  • Submit to a temperature check 

  • Fill out the Augustana College visitor form

  • Follow directional signage in the building

These procedures are subject to change. More specific information will be provided to you when you make an appointment. Materials used by patrons will be quarantined for 72 hours before they can be made available again.


We're happy to help, whether in-person or remotely.
