Make an Appointment

Persons interested in scheduling an onsite visit in Special Collections to conduct research are encouraged to make an appointment.

Appointments are most useful for researchers when they submit a list of resources they would like to review onsite prior to their arrival in Special Collections. We strongly encourage you to review our Frequently Asked Questions and search the following resources before submitting an appointment request.

We can also help you with a paper, project or other research-related topic. Complete the form below and we'll arrange for one of our archivists to meet with you in person. When describing your research need, provide as many details as possible, including relevant dates, locations, names, and formats. The more information you provide, the better we can direct you to useful resources so that you make the most of your appointment in Special Collections.

Appointments are available during our hours of operation. Requests may take up to 5 business days to process.

For general questions, please use our Ask an Archivist service.
