Schedule a Class Visit

We love to have classes visit! But we also love to be prepared. If you think we can enrich your students' education, let us know. We'd be more than happy to discuss our archival holdings, match materials to your syllabus, plan a visit to the Archives, and so forth. 

Individual Research

While we welcome researchers Monday - Friday, 9:00am - 4:30pm, we do encourage appointments. Appointments give us time to locate the materials and have them ready when you arrive. Plus, since we know you will be coming, we will try our best not to schedule classroom visits and ensure that you have the quiet research space you need in the reading room.

Ask an Archivist!
