Visiting a Research Center

Before arriving, visitors should contact the research center to verify that the collection material they would like to view is available, as materials may be restricted, in storage, or located at another research center. Collections stored at one research center can be viewed at any of the other research centers. Please note that transfers between research centers can take between one and three weeks.

Please contact the Cape Girardeau and Springfield Research Centers directly for information regarding the next available bi-monthly collection material delivery.

SHSMO collections are stored at research centers across the state. Please make your research request at least two weeks in advance of your visit.
