Since our Archivist is on sabbatical through August 12th, 2022, most of our research services are unavailable. Researchers seeking specific materials from our Reading Room are welcome to use these items during our open hours (see above). These items have call numbers that begin with "Friends Collection Main" or "Friends Genealogy Collection." We are unable to answer more general questions (e.g. "I'm looking for information on my great grandfather" or "I'm seeking any materials on Quaker abolitionists from Terre Haute"), or questions that involve use of archival materials.
