Summer and breaks
Hours may change from semester to semester. Appointment availability is based on librarian availability.
The Archives & Special Collections room is located on the lower level of the Library off the lower lobby, which can be reached either from the lower level entrance or by exiting the CASE/EOP area.
Materials in these collections are available for use in the special collections room:

Appointment and material requests should be sent to Katherine Brent at email@example.com.
The Archives room is only available for use when a staff member is available to supervise use of the materials.
