Research by appointment
The University Archives is located on the 5th floor of the Alkek Library. Research appointments are generally available Monday through Friday between 8:00am and 5:00pm (excluding holidays and energy conservation days).
Research appointments are encouraged to allow time for retrieval of offsite materials and to reserve research space. Walk-in assistance is dependent on staff and space availability, as researchers with appointments are given priority.
