Funding for the arrangement and description of these collections was provided by the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC). The Michigan Technological University Archives and Copper Country Historical Collections received a federal grant in 2009 to support a two-year project to improve the description of its historical collections and share more of this information across the web. The grant, Award No: RB-50059-09 “Coming to the Surface: Revealing Hidden Collections in Michigan’s Copper Country,” was awarded by the National Historical Records and Publications Commission (NHPRC), a statutory body affiliated with the National Archives and Records Administration. The following represents the records now discoverable through OCLC's WorldCat and Michigan Tech's catalog. While the grant ended on October 31, 2011, the Collection Register will continue to be updated as new collections become available.
