The Virginia Historical Society has begun a project that involves the complete replacement of our standard book storage with compact shelving. During the period of this project, January 29-May 17, 2013, some portions of the VHS rare book and general research collection may be inaccessible to users. Please check with our library reference staff (804-342-9677 or firstname.lastname@example.org) in advance of a visit to the VHS to learn what portions of the collection may be currently inaccessible. We thank our patrons in advance for their patience during this project.
