Research Services

The Research Library offers a variety of services to assist you. Whether you come for a visit or need assistance online, we have services that meet your needs. Please call us at (313) 982-6020 or email us at research.center@thehenryford.org and we will be happy to respond to your request as soon as possible.

In-Depth Research
Recognizing that making a visit to the Benson Ford Research Center is not always possible, we also offer a research service for off-site clients where our professional staff will research a topic for you. Research fees may be waived for K-12 students, or for requests for information on an artifact donated by a family member. Please contact us at research.center@thehenryford.org for more information.
