Research Assistance

Special Collections will be closed from Monday, December 21, 2020 through Friday, January 8, 2021. During this time, we will not be available to accommodate reference queries or requests for duplications, digitization or permissions. 

We will do our best to respond to questions and requests received through December 18. If we need to delay work on any requests, our staff will let you know as soon as we can. Please contact us if you have questions. 

Thank you for your understanding and patience. 

Happy Holidays!


Staff are available for consultation using digital modes of interaction. If requests for materials cannot be fulfilled by digital copies, we will offer consultation by appointment once it has been determined that it is safe to do so. We will prioritize University of Arizona students, researchers, instructors, and staff until it is deemed safe to open to the broader community.
