Yes, you have the option to place requests to view materials in our reading room after you have set up an online account. First, create a Special Collections Request System account.

We highly suggest that you make a request in advance because some materials must be retrieved from an off-site storage facility (requiring 48 business hours of advanced notice) and in-house materials can only be retrieved by staff from our closed stacks. Visit the library’s public catalog. TIP: In the first drop down box that defaults to “Everything,” simply select “Special Collections” and then conduct your search. Click on the “Request Item” link in the catalog record to place your request.
