Due to facilities maintenance on the Center's ventilation system, the Center may close for a short period during the summer or experience disruptions to its reading room services. Although a date has not been set for this project, the Center wishes to make this announcement to potential researchers wishing to visit Amistad this summer. Details are forthcoming, and the staff will work to minimize disruptions to researcher services during the project. For more information, please contact the Reference Desk at (504) 862-3222 or reference (at) amistadresearchcenter.org.
