Consultations

Faculty, students and staff who have questions about our collections or want to access our materials should consult our online services. If you would like to schedule an appointment to visit, please indicate that on our research assistance request form. Our staff will review your request and follow up with you. If we can’t fulfill your needs any other way, we’ll work with you to set up a time to visit. The use of face coverings is strongly encouraged inside all library buildings, but not required. 

Primary sources and in-person classes

If you’re considering using primary sources in your curriculum, reach out to us as soon as possible for consultation. We aren’t able to accommodate in-person classes right now, but we can discuss options for curricular development using existing digital resources. Our digital collections and online exhibits are available and easy to access.
