University Archives and Manuscript Collections Reading Room Hours

Fall 2022 (through Friday, December 16th)

The University Archives and Manuscript Collections Department’s Moir Reading Room is open during the following times:

  • Tuesdays and Fridays: 11-3:30
  • Wednesdays and Thursdays: 9:30-2 

Interim 2022-2023 (Monday, December 19th – Friday, January 6th)

During the winter Interim the schedule for Moir will be:

  • December 19th – 23rd and January 2nd – 6th: By appointment only. Appointments may be scheduled for any time within the normal Fall semester hours listed above, but must be made at least two business days in advance. Please email for an appointment. 
  • December 26th – 30th: Closed.

Other considerations

  • The Moir Reading Room will be closed whenever Hamilton Library is closed, e.g. on state and Federal holidays.
  • The Reading Room may also have reduced hours during interim periods; please check the Library hours calendar for the most up-to-date information.
  • While appointments are not required during normal semester hours, researchers may still wish to inform Archives staff in advance of their visit to ensure that materials are available and ready when they arrive.

Note: As of Friday, September 16th, the UH System no longer requires masks indoors.  However, masking remains strongly recommended in indoor settings on campus.   In line with this new guidance we ask that researchers wear masks in the Moir Reading Room, but do not require it.
