Plan Your Visit

The Arkansas Studies Institute combines the archival holdings of two institutions, UALR and the Central Arkansas Library System’s Butler Center for Arkansas Studies, under one roof.

To help make the researcher’s experience efficient and fulfilling, the two institutions have created a single research portal that provides all of the information you need to plan your visit to the archive, including the ability to submit questions and requests to the ASI staff.
