Ask the Archives

Special Collections and Archives welcomes queries from offsite patrons. Unfortunately, we are unable to perform extensive research in response to questions submitted. Patrons are also encouraged to visit Special Collections in person or contact us for information regarding researchers for hire in our area.

Requests for general information about our manuscript, photograph and rare book holdings, regional history, and the history of Southeast Missouri State University are all suitable subjects for a reference query. Normal turn around time is 7–10 days.
