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.

Audio/visual materials

Audiovisual materials must be requested ahead of time because it may be necessary to reformat the materials before they can be accessed. For more information on accessing audio/visual materials, please visit: Access to the Sound Recordings.
