MHS librarians and staff are available to answer ready–reference questions, such as "Do you have a book on the Smith family?" or "When was Portland first settled?"

We might also be able to answer questions such as, "I found an old bottle from the Smith Drug store in Portland. When were they in business?"

If your request involves research, especially if we need to consult microfilm, manuscripts, or unindexed material, please fill out our Research Request Form.
