Notice: The archives are currently undergoing renovation and we are unable to accomodate researchers in the reading room at this time.  We expect our renovations to be completed before March.  We look forward to reopening and sharing our improved space with you.  Please direct any concerns and/or pressing research questions to the archivist.

If the Archives doors are locked, please ask for the Archivist at the MLRC Circulation Desk or Reference Desk.

If you are inquiring after 5:00 pm, please ask for help from the reference librarian at the Reference Desk.

Those unable to visit the archives during posted research hours may be able to arrange an alternate time by contacting the archivist.


Appointments with the Archivist are recommended.  Many materials are housed separately from the general collection, and not every item is cataloged.
