Friends Collection and College Archives: Hours

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

Visiting Our Collections

Our hours change from the ones listed below during breaks and for other expected and unexpected reasons. 

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. Sometimes we are in meetings or away from campus and we may have to unexpectedly close. We try to keep these times to a minimum.


Covid Policies

All patrons are required to wear masks when visiting the Archive and must keep them on for the duration of their visit with us. Patrons are also expected to follow all campus safety protocols during their visit.


Fall Semester Hours

Hours may change on short notice based on staffing. Appointments are highly recommended for people traveling to visit us. (You can request an appointment by emailing us at We recommend making your appointment at least three business days in advance.
