The Iowa History Research Centers are open Tuesday – Friday from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. While the Research Centers do not require a scheduled appointment, scheduling an appointment in advance of your visit is highly recommended if you plan on accessing the State Archives and Special Collections materials. Please fill out and submit the information below, and one of our staff members will contact you to confirm and coordinate details related to your appointment. Requesting an appointment does not guarantee an appointment. Your appointment is confirmed once a staff member has contacted, coordinated and confirmed with you.
