We are open Monday – Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. However, there are times that we close to accommodate off-site outreach programs or staff schedules. We are closed on major holidays.

Columbia Archives offers limited research service for those unable to visit the facility. A simple question that requires minimal research is free of charge. If your question requires a more in-depth investigation, the staff can conduct limited research. Fees for research are $20 per half hour or portion thereof. Fees will be added for photocopies or scans if applicable.
