Planning Your Research Visit
Please submit reading room requests ahead of time using the Special Collections Research Account online system. We especially recommend that out-of-town researchers or researchers working on time-sensitive projects contact staff at least two weeks ahead of your visit. Some materials need to be retrieved from off-site and will not be immediately available without advance notice. Researchers may also want to contact one of our curators or other Special Research Collections staff for more in-depth reference assistance.
