Historic Research

Archival Research inquiries about our collections, research topics and requests to visit the reading room. If you would like to conduct research at our reading room in New York, please be advised that there is often a wait list for seats, and so you must contact the archives in advance to ensure that you will be able to do your research. As we are often booked weeks in advance, it is advisable to plan your visit with as much advance notice as possible. During the months of April - August, you MUST ensure you have a desk booked at least 2 months in advance of your visit, or we cannot  guarantee that you will be able to conduct research due to space issues.
