Research Appointments

The Alice Phelan Sullivan Library

NOTE: Beginning September 1, 2023, The Society of California Pioneers will be pausing all research appointments and rights & reproduction requests as we prepare to relocate our collection. We anticipate resuming these services in late December. Please reach out to [email protected] with any questions or concerns.

The library is a non-circulating research library that includes books, archives, manuscript materials, maps, newspapers, periodicals and ephemera. The Library is open to the public free of charge and researchers are welcome by appointment.

Due to limited resources, we are restricted in the number and types of research appointments that we can make at this time. Please contact us at [email protected] for more information about our collection or to make a research request. Please include a succinct message about your specific research needs and you will be contacted about what our library can provide.

Please note that many of the collections are fragile and there are restrictions on the use of original documents. Reproduction requests are filled at the discretion of the staff member.
