About the Archives

We are open to qualified researchers by appointment only.  Hours are Monday – Friday, 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m, except for the holidays observed by St. Mary’s Seminary & University and scheduled closings. Family historians may schedule either a morning or an afternoon appointment on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Call (410-864-4074) or e-mail to schedule a visit.

In the case of inclement weather, please either call 410-864-4074 or check the web page for the Seminary to learn if the institution has been closed or will have a delayed opening.

Please note that while we try to meet the special needs of researchers, we do not allow infants, toddlers, or small children to be brought into the archives. Students under the age of 18 will need to be accompanied by an adult.
