Due to the emergence of the Covid-19 Omicron variant, the Archives will be suspending onsite services as of January 3, 2022, until further notice.
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. Call (410-864-4074) or e-mail to schedule a visit.
Individuals who contact us in advance about their research interests have the most successful visits. Archival research can be complex, so the more prepared we are for your visit, the better we can help you find what you need. Archivists can help you prepare for your visit, provide guidance on how to conduct archival research, recommend primary and secondary sources relevant to your topic, and help identify collections and materials of interest.
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.
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.
