Research & Reference Application Form
The Manuscripts and Archives Division staff welcomes your inquiries regarding our collections. We will help you identify and consult the collections in our holdings that support your research. Even if you do not intend to visit the Library, all reference inquiries are to be submitted via the form below.
To expedite requests for specific resources, please complete and submit this form at least one week in advance of your intended visit. Failing to contact us far enough in advance may delay your access to materials for up to a day.
All researchers are required to register via the form below. Reference questions are answered in the order they are received.
