Special Collections continues to be available by appointment to students, faculty, and staff, and will extend appointments to the public starting August 2nd, Monday through Friday, 10am to 4pm. Beginning August 23rd, Special Collections will be open to the public.

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 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 strongly encouraged inside all library buildings, but not required. 

Members of the general public may continue to consult our online services to submit research questions or request duplications and other services prior to extending appointments to the public on August 2nd.
