In-person Research Appointments

In-person research appointments are temporarily restricted as of April 8, 2021.

While there is limited access to on-site Library facilities, we will be offering in-person Research Appointments for users of the Archives and Special Collections and the Collaboratory.

Appointments are available for up to 3 hours in duration on Mondays and Wednesdays from 11am – 2pm. Please submit your appointment request at least 2 days in advance.

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.

All these appointments must be booked in advance.

Archives and Special Collections

Starting Wednesday, August 5th, we will be providing limited access to Archives and Special Collections for faculty and graduate students. We will be open for appointments of up to 3 hours, on Mondays and Wednesdays from 10-1.

Please submit your appointment requests at least 2 days in advance and be 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 for Library Books or Archives and Special Collections Materials
