    Avery Research Center open by appointment for research visits only

    The Avery Research Center for African American History and Culture was scheduled to be closed from February 2017 to October 2017 for renovations to improve the environmental conditions of the building so we could continue to be good stewards of the collections we house. However, due to construction delays the renovation has to be postponed until Spring/Summer 2018. Therefore, we are going to reopen by appointment only for reference requests. For access please e-mail averyresearchcenter@cofc.edu or call 843-953-7613 five (5) business days in advance to make an appointment during the hours of 10:00 AM to 12:30 PM; 1:30 PM to 5:00 PM Monday thru Friday.

    We are sorry for any inconvenience our previous closing might have caused, but we are committed to being good stewards of the collections as well as providing access to material. Additionally, we hope that this limited reopening of the collections will assist our patrons who are working on projects.

    There will continue to be NO public or group tours of the building.

    Thank you for your continued patience and support!
