Visiting the Women and Leadership Archives

The Women and Leadership Archives (WLA) is excited to welcome History Fair teachers and students! No appointment is required to visit the WLA during our normal operating hours, but they are encouraged. We are also happy to offer special/weekend appointments with advance notice.

Fall 2017 Hours:

  • Monday 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
  • Tuesday 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
  • Wednesday 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
  • Thursday 11 a.m. - 7 p.m.
  • Friday 8:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m.

WLA staff are happy to work with both students and teachers on topic ideas and use of primary sources from the archives. When visiting the WLA, students may feel free to talk with staff about what records pertain to a potential subject and how to use finding aids. WLA staff are well-versed in working with primary sources and eager to help.

Teachers may also feel free to contact WLA Director Nancy Freeman to discuss potential topics and archival resources. Sometimes archival records are a bit "hidden" and specific pertinent collections are not readily visible through finding aids or other online resources. Nancy can be reached at nfreeman1@luc.edu or 773.508.8432.
