Schedule a Special Collections Appointment

Please note: The chair lift that provides access to 4 West is out of order. Because of this, access to the reading room requires climbing stairs. Special Collections staff will arrange for appointments in accessible locations in the building as needed. Please note any necessary accommodations on your appointment reservation.

By making an in-person appointment, users agree to follow the University's safety expectations. Users are also required to follow established reading room rules, including thorough handwashing before handling materials. See also information about resources and tools in the reading room.


The microfilm machines in Ellis 404 can be used without an appointment during Ellis Library's normal hours. Please email if the microfilm you are looking for is not located in Ellis 404.
