Collection Research 

CHSA is modernizing collections to build better accessibility. We will respond to research requests and consider donation offers again in 2025.

CHSA is proud to make its collection accessible to the general public. Interested students and professionals are encouraged to explore research opportunities by making an appointment with our collections staff.
