You will get access to the materials much faster if you contact the archives in advance. Here's why:
- Off-site collections: Some of our collections are stored off site and staff will need time to retrieve them. We ask for 2 business days advance notice.
- Related materials: Even if you have something specific you want to see (and know how to request it), we may have suggestions for other materials.
- Check the holdings: As with most archives, many of our collections don't have detailed descriptions. If you're looking for a specific document or piece of information, contact the archives before making a trip so that you won't be disappointed if the collection doesn't have what you're looking for.
- Research Help: We understand that using archives can be complicated. We know our collections and are truly happy to help!
