University Archives announces summer hours

The Harvard University Archives, including the Records Management Office, will be open to the public on a reduced schedule during the summer months to accommodate upgrades to the facility’s elevators. Beginning June 13 and continuing until the work is completed in late August, the archives reading room, located in Pusey Library in Harvard Yard, will be open Monday through Friday, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

As always, researchers should contact the archives five business days in advance of a visit because many collections are stored off-site or may require special permission for access. In addition, University offices and other Records Management clients can schedule additional records pickup and delivery times by calling (617) 495-5961.
