Michigan Tech Archives reading room now open by appointment

HOUGHTON — Beginning Monday, July 27, the Michigan Technological University Archives and Copper Country Historical Collections will reopen to patrons on an appointment basis. Appointments may be requested by calling (906) 487-2505 or emailing copper@mtu.edu. An appointment request form will also be available on the library website. Please note that all appointments must be confirmed by an archives staff member at least 24 hours prior to the requested appointment time. Appointment requests for Mondays must be confirmed by the close of business on the preceding Friday.

Appointments will be available in the archives reading room (garden level of the Van Pelt and Opie Library), Monday through Friday from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. daily, subject to patron capacity limits and staff availability. During this time, the Michigan Tech Archives requires a mask or similar face covering to enter the reading room for your appointment, unless you have a medical reason which prevents you from safely doing so. Patrons are also required to wash their hands before entering the archives. To provide space between researchers, reading room capacity will be limited.

For questions about the appointment process or the archives collections, please contact University Archivist Lindsay Hiltunen at (906) 487-2505 or email lehalkol@mtu.edu. The archives staff look forward to welcoming patrons back to the reading room.

The university requests that all Michigan Tech guests and visitors complete the COVID-19 symptom tracking form available on the university website at: https://www.mtu.edu/flex/portal/
