Hours, Appointments, & Location

Archives & Special Collections Reading Room


Summer, starting August 5, 2020

We are providing limited access to Archives and Special Collections for faculty and graduate students during the COVID-19 shut down. We will be open for appointments up to 3 hours, on Mondays and Wednesdays from 10-1. Please submit your appointment requests at least 2 days in advance.

To make an appointment to access material in the Ryerson University Archives and Special Collections, please complete and submit the Mediated Collections Access Appointment form, being sure to include the Call Numbers of the books or the Reference Codes of the material you would like to access, you can also include the URL to Library Books or Archives and Special Collections Materials. You will receive an email confirming your appointment and providing access information.

Research appointments are designed to meet the needs of researchers who require access to specific equipment, collections, software or space, and for whom this need cannot be met through online resources and services.

If a request is made, which the Library can meet through virtual services, researchers will be directed appropriately.
