Special Collections and Archives will modify our open hours this summer in order to focus our attention on large-scale projects that require the time and skills of multiple staff members, as well as to facilitate some upgrades to our space.
From June 17th to August 30th, SPCA will be open to researchers from 1 pm – 5 pm, Monday through Thursday. The reading room will be closed on Fridays this summer. Email and phone reference requests will also be answered during the Monday -Thursday afternoon open hours.
Distance researchers who have made arrangements with us in advance and who are traveling to Chicago for their research will be accommodated outside of these hours (i.e. will be assisted from 9 am – 5 pm, and on Fridays).
There may be additional days that the reading room will be closed due to renovation work in the space. The library hours webpage will reflect the most current information, and announcements will be made over social media.
