Woodson Research Assistance

Woodson Research Center staff provide research assistance in accessing our primary source materials (university archives and manuscript collections) and rare books.   


WRC staff will assist you in identifying research materials relevant to your subject, whether in person or by phone, mail, or e-mail.

For distance patrons, WRC staff can assist in research from 20 minutes up to an hour's time for a fee of $25.

For extensive research assistance (beyond one hour), the WRC maintains a list of proxy researchers who are available to help for a fee. Please contact the Woodson Research Center by calling 713-348-2586 or emailing the staff at woodson@rice.edu and ask about proxy researchers who can be hired to conduct on-site research.
