Maryland Public Archives To Close Research Room Nov 21

Pardon our dust! Beginning November 21st, the Search Room will close as part of maintenance repairs to the building, with reopening tentatively scheduled for early January. Consequently, during that period, Maryland State Archives’ staff will offer limited in-person service Tuesdays through Fridays in our lobby only. Guests requiring documents for legal or emergency purposes will be prioritized for the duration of the repair period. Please be advised that we cannot guarantee ...staff availability to assist with genealogical or scholarly research during this time and we strongly advise that you delay your visit until after the repair period.
Though we will be able to provide limited walk-in services from November 21, 2016 - January 6, 2017, the Archives will be closed to all visitors from January 9 - January 13, 2017 as final repairs are completed. This schedule is subject to change, and we will do our best to notify the public of any adjustments to the schedule, or limitations to the services we are able to provide, as soon as possible.
As always, our staff will fulfill orders by email at msa.helpdesk@maryland.gov, by phone at 410-260-6487, by fax at 410-974-2525, and by mail to 350 Rowe Boulevard, Annapolis, MD. Please note that maintenance in the stacks and in the Search Room may impact access to records, and potentially increase our turnaround times.
Thank you for your patience during this time as we work to enhance the customer experience for the future and maintain the best environment for Maryland's priceless permanent records.
