Research Requests

**While our priority is the WVU community, we will continue to work with our external patrons remotely, as best we can during the COVID-19 pandemic. If possible, please submit your requests using this request form**

Those who need assistance prior to visiting or who cannot visit in person are welcome to contact us via phone, mail, or via our Research Request webform with questions or research requests. Long distance research requests are generally limited to information regarding the Center's holdings and advice as to how users may gain access to the information they need.

If you are looking for a specific piece of information (e.g. an obituary) for which a citation is readily available (e.g. bibliographic citation, or exact date and place of death in case of an obituary), staff can conduct a limited search for free. For larger requests, staff can conduct research for $20 per hour, payable whether or not the search is successful.

If you have a more extensive research need, a list of names and addresses of local people who can perform research for a fee is available upon request.
