All the books in Special Collections are listed in the Library Discovery Search. Once you find an item you need access to,  fill out this request form and submit it for review. Joe Swatski, Special Collections and Archives Librarian, handles requests. 

A couple of things to keep in mind:

  1. Special Collections materials will be examined in a supervised area of the Library.
  2. Food and beverages are not permitted when using these materials.
  3. All notes must be taken in pencil. 
  4. The researcher is responsible for the protection of these materials while in use; care must be taken that items are in the same condition as they were found, when  returned. Items handled must not be marked, torn, stained, soiled, wet,  highlighted, or stolen.
  5. Photography is at the discretion of the Library staff present and no flash can be utilized. 
  6. ID cards will be held at the Reference Desk or by the Librarian supervising the use of the Special Collection items, and returned after the Special Collections appointment.
