Columbia Research Center and galleries to close on Mondays, beginning in OctoberEffective October 1, the Society’s Research Center-Columbia, associated art galleries, and administrative office headquarters will close to the public on Mondays to allow staff members time for collections management and care, completion of special projects, preparation of exhibitions and displays, and additional internal matters.
The practice of non-public work on Monday is fairly standard in large collecting institutions and those offering ongoing gallery exhibitions, response to public information requests, and answers to individual research queries. Examples of institutions that close one day a week include the Indiana Historical Society, Iowa Historical Society, Kansas State Historical Society, Kentucky Historical Society Research Library, Nebraska Historical Society, Tennessee State Library & Archives, and Ohio Historical Society, as well as the Missouri History Museum in St. Louis.
The Society’s Research Center-Columbia will be open to researchers and gallery visitors, Tuesday-Friday, 8:00-4:45, and Saturday, 8:00-3:30.
