The open hours of Special Collections & Archives are subject to change between academic quarters and intersessions. Please confirm current hours before planning your visit.
We have special conditions for use and handling requirements that all visitors must follow.
Special Collections’ material does not circulate but may be paged for use within our Reading room. Advance notice is required for use of some material so that it can be retrieved from storage.
We have moved to an electronic request system that allows researchers to make requests for reproductions and to view materials in our reading room. This system replaces paper registration and request forms for using our reading room.
