Requesting Research

If you'd like to request research from ACHS, the standard fee is $30 per hour with a two-hour minimum of $60 per request. This fee must be paid in advance of research being done. In making an inquiry, one should ask specific questions for which an answer is sought. We cannot promise answers to the questions asked but we can guarantee a thorough examination of our holdings and a report of our findings. Up to 20 copies of pertinent materials will be sent to you by email per request. Additional copies can be included for $0.50 each. If you would like copies of specific documents and our volunteers determine that it will not require a full research inquiry, copies can be made for a $10 fee (for documents up to five pages), or a $25 fee for documents up to 15 pages. 

Note: All materials will be delivered via email, or can be picked up at ACHS if the patron wishes.
