Archives & Special Collections: Getting Started
We're Here to Help
Searching for, finding, and using one-of-a-kind materials can be complicated. That's why the Archives & Special Collections staff is here to help!
Our physical materials can only be used onsite, so you will need to contact us to make an appointment (email us at email@example.com). We are also available to consult with you about your research and help you identify material (physical and digital) matching your interests.
Keep in mind that using rare and fragile materials can be slow going, so allow plenty of time for your research.
For more information about archival research, take a look at Using Archives: A Guide to Effective Research from the Society of American Archivists or A Survival Guide to Archival Research from the American Historical Association.
