Fall Term Hours and Collections Access

We are now open to all researchers and no appointments are required.

New permanent Reading Room hours will run from 9:30-12 and 1-3:30. All in-person researchers must follow Wayne State University's vaccine and masking requirements and visitors will need to fill out the campus daily screener before arrival. Be ready to show your QR code!

Please check this space for further updates to mask and screener policies.

As always, we encourage you to submit questions at Ask an Archivist at your convenience and we continue to offer distance consultation and remote scanning services. We look forward to working with you all, whether remotely or in person, this year.
