Archival Usage Policies & Procedures

These rules are necessary to preserve the materials and guarantee their orderly administration.

Usage Policies

  1. The Special Collections and Archives stacks are closed to the public. A request form should be presented to the staff member at the reading room desk. The materials will be retrieved for use.
  2. Identification must be presented when submitting the request form. If this is the first request of the academic year, a registration form must be completed before the materials will be retrieved.
  3. Materials may only be used in the reading room. They do not circulate.
  4. You may take to a desk in the reading room only note-taking materials, pencils, or a laptop computer. Coats, briefcases, and other materials (including cell phones) must be placed in the storage locker available in the reading room. Cameras and scanners are prohibited unless the Archivist has approved their use in advance.
