Visitors to the Center may access books, manuscripts, microfilm, and online databases. Many of the resources at the center are available at no cost, though there are charges for certain services such as photocopying.

The CAHC Mission:

The CAHC ensures that the history of the state is accessible through the collection and maintenance of archival material, promotes an understanding of the past through scholarly exchange and public dialog, and supports academic achievement through the education of undergraduate and graduate students.

The center’s archives are a repository that identifies, collects, and preserves Arkansas records and papers that are both of enduring value and in support of the university mission.
