Requesting Materials

After registering, researchers can submit requests online to view special collections material in the reading rooms. Books and other printed works are primarily found in the Library's Main Catalog. Manuscripts and archives are primarily cataloged in the Finding Aids.

In the finding aids, navigate the records until you locate one that interests you. You can choose one or more item depending on the page you’re on by clicking the “Request this Item” button next to the shopping cart icon. The icon is also in the collection level list on the left-side of the page. When you are completely finished with your searches, you can then choose the “Request Items” in the “Request Cart” side panel. You will be notified when your items are available in one of our Reading Rooms
