Further Research

If a researcher's needs cannot be met by the services available online, he or she can visit us at the University of the Free State. ARCA is located on the ground floor of the Stef Coetzee building on the campus in Bloemfontein, South Africa.

Reading Room Hours: Mondays to Fridays

08h30 - 12h45

13h30 - 16h30

The right of admission and the use of the Reading Room is reserved.

Inventories of collections are available in the Reading Room. These inventories are used for the selection of specific files in a collection which the researcher wishes to consult. After selection of the required files, the inventory must be returned to the Reading Room Officer, after which the necessary application forms for consultation of the selected files must be completed.

Research material may only be consulted in the Reading Room.

Photocopies will be furnished at the current rate of charge. The Archive cannot, however, undertake to furnish such copies within a specified period of time.
