How to Visit

The American Heritage Center is beginning its phased reopening plan for on-site research. Please review the 4 steps listed below to know before you go, and ensure your safety, and the safety of others during your visit. We are excited to welcome you back and thank you for your patience and understanding!

1. Schedule an Appointment

All on-site research will require a pre-approved appointment, no walk-in research is possible at this time. Appointments must be made online. Contact Reference Services if you have questions. Please allow up to three business days for a reply or confirmation of your appointment.


2. Complete Patron Registration Form

Once your on-site visit has been approved, and before your visit, please fill out our patron registration form and email it back to us.


3. Review Reading Room Procedures

  • An archivist will open the locked reading room door on the 4th floor for you no sooner than 5 minutes before your designated appointment time.

  • You will be assigned a research table and a space to store personal items. Seating is limited due to social distancing guidelines.

  • Only the materials requested in your appointment application will be available. Materials can be requested for a subsequent on-site visit.

  • Please view additional guidelines.


4. Review Safety Guidelines

  • If you are not feeling well, or suspect that you may have been exposed, please stay home - we will be happy to reschedule your research appointment when you are feeling better.

  • Social distancing and masks are strongly encouraged and requested at all times.

  • We are frequently sanitizing tables, copiers/scanners, chair arms, and all other high-touch surfaces.

  • Disposable gloves, disinfecting wipes, handwashing stations, and hand sanitizer will be provided for researchers.
