About the Mailing List Service

Minnesota law requires that names and addresses of individuals or organizations licensed by the State of Minnesota be made available to the public.  Since 1982, selected mailing lists have been sold by Minnesota's Bookstore (part of the State of Minnesota Department of Administration) through the state's Mailing List Service.  Lists are purchased by individuals and companies from across the country.

Because most purchasers of these mailing lists use the information to generate income for themselves or their businesses, the philosophy within the Department of Administration is that these lists should be sold at market value.  In this way, the cost of providing the information is passed on to users of the data, not to State of Minnesota taxpayers.  Lists are typically purchased to:

  • provide information about continuing education
  • introduce new products
  • market new services
  • recruit new employees
  • solicit charitable contributions
  • conduct research

Funds generated from the sale of mailing lists are used to help operate Minnesota's Bookstore.  Minnesota's Bookstore receives no legislative appropriation and operates as a business in a government setting, generating income through the sale of publications, mailing lists, and other products available to the general public.

For individuals who do not wish to have their names included in a mailing list sold for commercial purposes, the Mailing List Service provides an opportunity for names to be removed.  Please contact us for more information about this service.
