You will be prompted to Login with your Special Collections Request Account (or to create one if you have not already registered). The citation information will then carry over from the catalog - look it over, schedule the date of your visit, and submit your request!
A note about delivery times: Generally speaking, we can pull materials the same day, just moments after you place the request if you're already in the library, but keep an eye out for our materials that are stored OFFSITE, as delivery of these times may take up to a week.
You're now ready to come in to Special Collections (bring your ID!).
Hours: M-F, 9-5 during the summer
