Information for Your Visit


The Archives reading room is temporarily located in the Julian Science and Mathematics building, classroom 111, while the Roy O. West Library undergoes renovation. The physical collection is currently inaccessible to research during this time. We encourage you to use our online resources, such as the Digital Library and the Archives Catalog.

Research Visit Guidelines

Researchers are strongly recommended to make an appointment at least two or more (2+) business days prior to conducting research in the Archives. Advance notice allows staff to assist in identifying and pulling requested material before arrival. Retrieval of archival material without an appointment is dependent upon staff availability. Schedule an appointment by completing the Archives Research Request online form

Researchers must register at the Archives reference desk upon arrival. A registration form must be completed and photo identification presented before viewing any archival material. 

Archival material will not be retrieved within the last hour of closing. Staff will gather materials thirty (30) minutes prior to closing. Upon request, archival material can be placed on hold for the duration of the research visit.
