Archives and Special Collections is happy to answer reference questions. You may send us reference questions via the reference form, email us directly, or call us (502-852-6752). We try to respond promptly to email inquiries and the Archives email account is checked daily.
While the Archives and Special Collections staff is pleased to answer reference questions, human resource constraints limit the amount of time we can give to responding to an individual researcher's inquiries. We may advise researchers to either come to ASC in person in order to conduct their own research, or to hire a researcher who works in the Louisville area. We have a list of local independent researchers who may be hired to perform research for remote users for a fee. Users may make arrangements with these researchers directly.
Archives and Special Collections has developed a series of videos to help you find your way if new to archival research, or if you just have questions about Archives and Special Collections and how best to find and access our collections.
