A helpful guide to several important North Dakota collections is John B. Davenport (v. 1), Colleen A. Oihus (v. 2), and Sandra J. Beidler (v. 3), Guide to the Orin G. Libby Manuscript Collection and Related Research Collections,978.416/G1 J53L Vol: 1-3, Three Volumes. (Grand Forks, North Dakota: Chester Fritz Library, University of North Dakota, 1975, 1983, 1985). 

To learn more about the history and record-keeping systems of North Dakota counties, use the inventories of the Mercer, Golden Valley, and Williams Counties' archives published by the Historical Records Survey around 1940. The Family History Library has copies of these inventories.
