Research Consultations

The Alabama Department of Archives & History is offering individualized research consultations by email and by phone. Whether you are visiting an archive for the first time or are an experienced researcher, you are encouraged to sign-up for a consultation so we may provide the most efficient service possible.

Your consultation will be conducted by one of our six expert Reference staff. For best results, please request your consultation several days in advance of your visit. Through the consultation, the archivist can:

  • Help you identify specific ADAH collections that align with your research topic.
  • Provide links to finding aids that describe collections in greater detail.
  • Suggest other resources and repositories that will enhance your project.
