Preserving the history of all voices
The UA Little Rock Center for Arkansas History and Culture is housed in the Bobby L. Roberts Library of Arkansas History and Art building, a partnership between the University of Arkansas at Little Rock and the Central Arkansas Library System. The Roberts Library is open to anyone interested in researching Arkansas history. Although there are many free resources available, there are some charges for photocopying and other services. The material can be digitally scanned upon request.
In the research room on the second floor, visitors may access books, manuscripts, microfilm, and online databases. We recommend that you call ahead at 501.320.5700 before your research trip so that the archivist can appropriately plan for your visit. Research room hours are Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m.
