Research Assistance

Special Collections continues to be available by appointment to students, faculty, staff and the public. Appointments are available Monday through Friday, 10am to 4pm. Special Collections will continue to offer appointment-only research services until further notice. Appointment requests must be made at least one week in advance.

Faculty, students, staff and members of the public 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 below. 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 required in the Special Collections reading room.
