Plan Your Research


Please be aware that there are periods of intermittent noise and minor disruptions in the Kislak Center due to construction on the mezzanine level of the Richter Library.

The Kislak Center is still open for Special Collections and University Archives research, but for a quieter study space please use the Cuban Heritage Collection Reading Room (2nd floor) or call 305-284-3247 for assistance.

The Kislak Center Reading Room is open for research Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Special Collections and University Archives librarians and staff are available to assist you during these times.

For those not affiliated with the University of Miami, please notify us of your visit and a guest pass will be prepared prior to your arrival. The University of Miami Coral Gables campus is easily accessible from the Metrorail University Station on Ponce de Leon Boulevard, and it is served by Metrobus routes 48, 56, and the Midnight Owl (500). The Hurry ‘Cane Shuttle can be used to get around the Coral Gables campus.

For general information about the Center and its collections, please call or e-mail: 305-284-3247 |
