Contact Special Collections
Experienced researchers will realize that there is not a complete substitute for actually visiting the Special Collections Research Center, but for those who simply can’t visit, we will do what we can to help.
For general inquiries, please fill out and submit the Special Collections Information Request Form. Our knowledgeable staff will respond to your question as soon as possible. For more specific questions, please contact the appropriate person for your request from the list of staff contacts. To better assist you, please describe the nature of your inquiry, the intended use of the research material and a summary of your research project.
