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.
