Researchers Should Note the Following Before Scheduling an Appointment to the Bland Research Center:
1) Please write with pencils only! No pens or other marking materials are allowed. We will supply pencils and scratch paper upon request!
2) The items you are using are one-of-a-kind and cannot be replaced Please treat them accordingly. Our staff reserves the right to deny access to anyone who damages archival materials or research resources.
3) Unfortunately, we cannot promise that we will be able to pull items in storage for you if you arrive without an appointment. Please be aware that to view items in storage an appointment is required.
4) Please be aware that TCHS does offer a paid Research Request service if you would like our staff to conduct research for you. Our staff and volunteers are happy to assist you in finding items in the Bland Research Center, however, due to the volume of requests we receive, we kindly ask that you complete a research request form for in-depth research on a specific topic.
Are you interested in seeing items listed in our collection?
All of our archival documents are available to the public, but we do require an appointment in order to allow our staff time to find and pull the requested materials.
