How do I prepare for a research visit to the Library?
Researchers planning a visit should notify the Library of their research topic and travel plans as far in advance as possible. Prospective researchers are strongly encouraged to contact the Library for information about materials available on their topic. Upon arrival at the Library, each researcher will be assigned an archivist who will assist in obtaining relevant holdings. Researchers will also be briefed on research room procedures. It is preferable to arrange an appointment time with the interviewing archivist prior to arrival.
