Policies

​Our collections are open to any member of the community, provided that guidelines designed to promote the security and integrity of the collections are followed. We have a "closed-stack" system, which means that researchers request to have items retrieved from our stacks, and then these books or archival collections are delivered to our Reading Room for research use.  Researchers must make an appointment​ at least 48 hours in advance of visiting.

Research and Reproductions​

In-person researchers are responsible for making their own reference-copy reproductions. The following equipment is available:

    • Cell phone stand with Bluetooth shutter button (researchers provide their own cell phone)
    • Tabletop document scanner (researchers provide their own laptop computer and will need to download scanner software to operate)
  • Reproduction Policy
  • Self-Service Photography Guidelines
