Little Rock, AR 72201

Hours

Monday-Saturday, 8:00 A.M. - 4:30P.M.


Registration: Upon arriving in the Research Room, all patrons must sign the visitor log. First-time visitors will be asked to complete a short registration form and present a valid driver's license or other current photo identification. Researchers will receive a patron identification number that must be used on all subsequent visits when signing in or requesting materials.

Access: Most materials are available for immediate access, although researchers are advised to call ahead and discuss upcoming research trips with archives staff to help us better prepare for your visit. Most records and collections are available for public use without restriction, although some require 48-hours’ notice to access.

Copying Materials: Researchers may make photocopies of archival and print materials and make digital scans from microfilm. The Arkansas State Archives reserves the right to restrict copying if so doing would infringe upon copyright, create a preservation concern, or violate the terms of a donor agreement. Making photocopies requires the one-time purchase of a $1 copy card. Additional funds may be added to copy cards in whole-dollar amounts. Photocopies are $0.25 per page. Flash drives for making digital scans from microfilm can be purchased for $5.75 in the research room. Please note that the state archives' policy prohibits flash drives brought from home or used on personal home computers from being used on state agency computers.

Researchers should come prepared with cash for the copy card machine; but flash drives may be purchased with cash, check or money order in the research room. At this time, we are unable to accept credit cards.
