Planning a Research Visit to the VMI Archives


Holiday Schedule

Wednesday Nov. 25 until Monday Nov. 30
Monday December 21 until Monday January 4.

Regular Hours

8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday - Friday
We cannot accommodate evening or weekend research.

For your convenience, appointments are strongly recommended. This is especially important for out-of-town visitors, since we have a small staff and on rare occasions have unexpected changes in our hours. Simply call or email a few days in advance of your visit to confirm our hours and to give us information about your research topic so that we can have material ready for you.

Location & Directions

We are located in Preston Library, 4th Floor. Visitors do not need a special parking permit. After you enter the building, stop at the Main Desk and staff will direct you to the Archives.

For detailed directions and Post map, see VMI's visitor information page.
