The IHRC joins the archives and special collections units of Elmer L. Andersen Library in making materials available until 8 p.m. on Thursdays for researchers. The pilot program, which is intended to increase access to scholars working in the diverse collections housed in Andersen Library, began in October.

Extended Thursday hours will be especially valuable to researchers visiting from out of town and independent scholars who cannot visit Andersen Library during daytime hours.

Researchers seeking to work with IHRC holdings need to request materials in advance. They also can continue using a collection already in the Reading Room. IHRC staff will not be able to send items to the Reading Room after 4:30 p.m. on Thursdays. Please contact IHRC collections staff to arrange for materials to be delivered for Thursday evening hours.
