The University of Wyoming American Heritage Center (AHC) is opening on-site access for researchers beginning this month.
Direct, in-person access to its thousands of historical collections will now be available to researchers in its on-site reading room in two stages:
- For the first stage, beginning on Monday, May 17, Wyoming residents can conduct on-site research with a pre-approved appointment.
- For the second stage, beginning on Monday, June 14, all researchers can conduct on-site research with a pre-approved appointment.
The AHC has a wide array of collections, from Wyoming and Western history; Hollywood and the history of the entertainment industry; the transcontinental railroad and America’s transportation industries; mineral, coal, and oil extraction; journalism; women’s suffrage; and diversity in the West.
Appointments can be requested on weekdays from 9 am-noon and 1-4 pm. There are limited seats available, and no walk-in research is possible at this time without a pre-approved appointment.
Upcoming UW holiday closures include May 31 and July 5.
