Friends Collection and College Archives: Hours

For detailed information about archival & genealogy collection availability check the archives home page.


Our normal hours and upcoming changes in our hours are listed below. Because we are a Special Collections Library and Archive, our hours are different from the rest of the library. Please check our hours carefully to make sure we will be open for your visit. We recommend that you contact us ahead of time if you are traveling to visit us.

The Earlham Libraries do not typically allow holds to be placed on materials; we follow this practice as well. However, if you need an item from the circulating collection and the hours listed below simply do not work for you, please contact Jenny Freed directly to see if a special accommodation can be made.
