Guidelines for Using Materials in Special Collections and Archives
  • Materials may only be used in this department. They do not circulate.
  • Staff will advise on proper handling of all materials.
  • Eating, drinking, and smoking are strictly prohibited. All coats, umbrellas, purses, book bags, briefcases, and backpacks are kept in the coat closet.
  • Cell phones are not permitted in the reading room.
  • Pencils only may be used in the reading room. Pens and correction fluid are prohibited to prevent damage to the materials.
  • Materials should not be written on, erased on, leaned on, folded anew, traced, or handled in any way likely to inflict damage.
  • When using archives, maintain the exact order of folders in a box and of items within a folder. Remove only one folder at a time from the box and do not remove material from folders unless a corresponding File Out maker is put in its place.
  • Please consult with staff if photocopies are required.
Rules Governing the Use of Archives
Permission to use archives does not include permission to publish them. The researcher assumes full responsibility for conforming to the laws of libel and literary property rights which may be involved in the use of his/her materials. One copy of an archival document may be made for a researcher, but it is understood that it is for his/her personal research use and may not be copied by or for another person or deposited in another institution. Please see Reproduction Request form for further details.
