Research

University Archives & Historical Collections (UAHC) welcomes all researchers to its facilities. The reading room is open to everyone without a fee, and professional archivists are available to provide research assistance. UAHC is the most comprehensive source for information on the history and culture of Michigan State University.

Researchers do not need to make an appointment, but if you are traveling from a distant location, it is typically a good idea to call ahead. UAHC sometimes has special closings. If we know you will be visiting, we can have materials waiting for you when you arrive.

Looking for a place to stay while you are doing research at the archives? Check out MSU's lodging page or East Lansing's page for a few options. The University Archives does not provide any specific recommendations.
