Locations, Maps, & Parking

Renovation of the Briscoe Center’s first floor in Sid Richardson Hall Unit 2 is nearing completion! The new reading room and galleries will open to the public on Monday, April 10th, at 10:00 a.m. Reference services will continue to operate at the Benson Latin American Rare Books and Manuscripts Reading Room (our neighbors in Sid Richardson Hall, Unit 1) through Wednesday, April 5th, so appointments for research through that day are still recommended. Go to the “Plan Your Visit” page of our website to request an appointment.

In preparation for our opening, we will be closed for research on Thursday, April 6th and Friday, April 7th. Beginning April 10th no appointments will be necessary except for researchers requesting materials housed offsite. We look forward to serving you in our new space!
