In-person Research Appointments

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 Monday through Thursday from 10am – 4pm. 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.

To gain access to the Library Building, patrons are required to wear a mask at all timeshave their OneCard and complete a Health Screening. Students, faculty and staff are now required by the university to provide proof of vaccination prior to coming to campus. Please visit the university website for details.

We are providing access to Archives & Special Collections by appointment during the fall 2021 semester. We will be open for appointments up to 3 hours.
