The Swenson Center at Augustana College is a national archive and research institute providing resources for the study of Swedish immigration to North America, the communities the immigrants established, and the role the immigrants and their descendants have played in American life.  This is achieved by promoting and initiating academic research in the field and by collecting and cataloging Swedish-American archival and library materials.  Another major role for the Center is to assist people researching their Swedish-American genealogy.

During Museum Week, the Swenson Center will feature the exhibit "Flying Fool: Charles Lindbergh's Story."  This exhibit tells the story of his first solo, nonstop, transatlantic flight, the kidnapping and murder of his young son, and Lindbergh's visit to the Quad Cities.
