The Sequoyah National Research Center (SNRC) of the University of Arkansas at Little Rock finished relocating from University Plaza to the Fine Arts building on the UA Little Rock campus on June 1, 2022, after an 18-month process. SNRC was housed in University Plaza, Suite 500, since 2008 when SNRC moved out of Ottenheimer Library. In January 2021, the University administration deemed it necessary to find a new home for SNRC. The former ceramics and sculpture labs in the Fine Arts building were renovated to house the archival collections of SNRC. The relocation began in December 2021 and was completed after a multi-phase project in June 2022.
The new home of the Sequoyah National Research Center is Fine Arts, Room 156 with additional archival storage across the hall in Room 153. Two Spacesaver compact mobile shelving units house approximately 75% of the archival collections; both units were funded by grants awarded by the Arkansas Natural and Cultural Resources Council. The new space features a separate research room for visiting scholars and a separate processing room to process new archival collections.
All visitors may park in the metered parking lot at the north end of the Fine Arts building. SNRC is open Monday through Friday, 8am to 5pm. For more information, please call 501-916-3336.
