Material Transfer Request


The State Historical Society of Missouri is governed by a Board of Trustees whose Executive Committee has directed that each of the SHSMO research centers shall remain closed to patrons and staff so long as the campuses on which they are located are closed.

Beginning June 1, 2020, staff will resume fulfilling research requests. If you have a question or a research request, please submit those using the online Research Request Form.

Collection materials may be transferred to the research center of your choice from other SHSMO locations via our courier service. There is no charge for this service.

Please request records at least 2 weeks prior to your visit.

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.
