The James J. Hill Center is a world-class research facility dedicated to helping you start, build and grow your business or career. Explore our unparalleled collection of free online databases, free research classes, one-on-one research support through a Hill Membership and our Premium Research Services.
The Hill Center’s historic print collection is comprised of business archives from the mid-1800s to the turn of the 21st century. Some books are very old and in fragile condition. While visitors are encouraged to explore our collection, a staff person must assist with all handling of books. For historic research requests, email firstname.lastname@example.org prior to your visit.
To learn more about the Hill Membership and other Hill Center programs and services, we encourage you to make an appointment.
