The Helmerich Center for American Research welcomes all researchers. Some of our collection is available digitally, but we invite you to experience our Reading Room first-hand.

We encourage visitors to become familiar with our policies regarding use of the collection, and to read the Helmerich Center for American research COVID-19 update. Please do not hesitate to contact the librarian should questions arise.
