Archive Rules

Researchers interested in accessing the archives should take a look at the archive rules before coming to the library. Appointments for access should be made at least three days in advance. Research appointments are required for projects lasting for more than one day or requiring access to more than one collection, two boxes or five folders, but not required for small, short term projects. Letting the librarians know ahead of time what you will be interested in looking at will make things go more smoothly once you arrive.
