Due to current short staff levels in the Library/Archives researchers must make an appointment to do research in the archives. If you have examined the finding aids and know which boxes you'd like to see, please let the staff know when you make your appointment. This will expedite the process for both researcher and staff. In order to make an appointment, please call (314) 655-1600 and say that you'd like to make an appointment to do research in the library.
