To view items in the Union Station Collection you will need to visit the WashU library and review them at Special Collections. Please use the online list of drawings to compile a list of what you wish to view. Then email that list in and we can make you an appointment to view them. These items are large and fragile, so we need time to retrieve them from storage and get them ready for your use.
Special Collections is open Monday - Friday 9:00-5:00, with requests for materials concluding at 4:30 pm. (Please see our website for changes due to holidays or University events). You may bring a digital camera and/or laptop, if you wish. WiFi is available.
You might also find these books and published sources helpful. They are also available by visiting Special Collections:
|A study for a Union Station convention center / prepared for the Terminal Railroad Association of St. Louis by Schwarz & Van Hoefen.
Rouse Company of St. Louis, Inc. St. Louis Union Station.
The Department of Special Collections is located in Olin Library (1st floor) in the middle of the Danforth Campus (#81 on campus map). After entering Olin Library, pass the main staircase and look for the door on the left marked "Julian Edison Department of Special Collections."
