The MHS library is open to the public Monday - Friday, 10AM to 4:45PM, for onsite research visits. To protect the health of researchers and staff amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the MHS Library has implemented the following temporary policies:

  • A well-fitted mask covering the nose and mouth must be worn in all public spaces

All researchers are encouraged to request an appointment in advance of arriving at the MHS. Please visit our Appointment Request Form to select your preferred visit dates. Researchers with confirmed appointments will be guaranteed a seat in the reading room on their appointment date. Walk in researchers will be accommodated if spots are available on the daily schedule.    

The MHS Library is committed to providing all researchers with access to our collections and will continue to offer expanded reference and reproduction services.
