The AACA Library and Research Center is open free to the public during our regular hours of
operation. While visiting the library you can view any of our books or look at specific information regarding one of your cars or maybe just an automobile topic that you are interested in. For those of you that can’t make it out to the library in person, we offer off-site research available to
anyone who is interested to be completed by library staff.

If you are interested in off-site research, please fill in the Research Request Form below as
completely as possible. We will search our collection and then contact you with a list of the
available information and the applicable duplication fees for copies or scans. You may then
decide which items to order. Most of the time research requests are handled within a week but they may take longer to process depending on the library’s workload. Shipping is fulfilled via the US Postal Service only.

Processing and Shipping Fee:
Non-Members must pay a Processing Fee of $10 to start the research and help cover shipping.
AACA Members Only Pay for Shipping and Copies/Scans

Research Fees:
$30/hr – chargeable in units of $5 per 10 mins.
AACA Members receive 1.5 hours of free research per calendar year with additional time charged at the normal rate.

$0.30 a page for B&W
$0.50 a page for Color

Digital Scans:
$1 per scan available in JPEG, TIF, or PDF Format

We accept all major credit cards, PayPal, and checks made payable to the AACA Library.

Because we are a nonprofit corporation, our archival information and research services must be self-supporting. The schedule above reflects our fees in time and materials to fulfill your request.
Please note, For Non-Members the processing and shipping fee must be paid in US Dollars before we start on the request.
