Research Services


The Lawrence History Center welcomes research questions from all over the world.

Simply send an email to or call us at 978-686-9230 and we'll get to work together. We're always happy to help!

We do ask that people take out a membership when conducting their own research at LHC using our archival researches. Please click here for rates and more information about LHC membership.

The Lawrence History Center can complete research for patrons who are unable to perform the research themselves and provide photocopies, digital scans, prints, and permissions for use of photographs and other documents on a case by case basis.

Please contact us for the standard fees for these services or review the LHC Service Fee Structure, (Approved by the LHC Board of Directors, May 2013) in PDF here.
