Serves as a secure repository for the official records of the University, including the administrative files of schools, colleges, and departments, university publications, Howard theses and dissertations, as well as materials illustrating the contributions of Howard alumni to society. Thank you for your outreach to the Moorland-Spingarn Research Center. Howard University has transitioned to an online and remote instruction format for the remainder of the semester. Additionally, faculty and staff, including Moorland-Spingarn and Founders’ Library, have been directed to telework in order to de-densify the campus. For the foreseeable future, we will not be open to the public.
