Special Collections continues providing research assistance

The University of Arizona Libraries Special Collections will continue to be closed until further notice.

We're fulfilling requests by digital means first and whenever possible. If absolutely necessary, we'll provide on-site visits by appointment only. Currently, appointments are limited to University of Arizona students, staff, and faculty. 

For research assistance, your first step is to contact us through our research assistance service form or email us at

If an appointment is necessary, our staff will work with you to schedule your appointment according to our quarantine protocols and staff availability.

We continue to provide scans of requested research materials whenever possible, especially for our non-campus clientele.
