The State Historical Society of Missouri
SHSMO's research centers are located in Cape Girardeau, Columbia, Kansas City, Rolla, St. Louis, and Springfield. Before arriving, visitors should contact research center staff to verify that the manuscript collection they would like to view is available, as materials may be restricted, in storage, or located at another research center. Collections stored at one research center can be viewed at any of the others; transfers between campus research centers usually takes 48 hours. Microfilmed collections can be borrowed through interlibrary loan.
