Effective Monday, March 16, 2020, Special Collections is closed to the public in an effort to support Library efforts to combat the spread of COVID-19. Despite limited access to our physical materials, we continue to provide access to archival materials through our digitized resources in CHC Online, UTC Digital Collections, and UTC Scholar. We are offering reference services and consultations online, and we continue to provide high resolution copies of our digital material through our copy services. If you have questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you'd like to contribute to Special Collections, consider transcribing unique documents to improve the ability to search and read handwritten content in our Digital Collections. Learn more about Virtual Volunteer Opportunities.
