Staff Research on Your Topic

As part of our day-to-day operations, the Archives will provide remote research services for free for the first 30 minutes. If answering your question will exceed 30 minutes or you are not satisfied with the information we can gather in 30 minutes, the fee schedule is as follows:

$50/hour, which will be pro-rated every 15 minutes, for up to four hours per request.

For example, if your request takes a total of 55 minutes, you will be charged for 30 minutes, which is $25.

The Archives will make every effort to fulfill your request within 30 days of receipt but cannot guarantee prompt turnaround. When we confirm receipt of your request, we will ask if you have a deadline you are trying to meet, and we will do our best to accommodate that deadline.

For research requests that exceed four hours, we will refer you to local researchers in the area who perform this service for a fee.
