Q. How can I use material from the Archives? Do I need to make an appointment?
While some archival material is available online, almost all collections are print-only and will need to be viewed on-site at the Bentley Library. Because archival material cannot be checked out, and because it is not stored in the regular stacks, researchers need to make an appointment with the Archivist to view material.
If you know which collections you'd like to use, or if you want to see a variety of material related to a certain topic, email the Archivist to set up an appointment. Please keep in mind that most material needs to be ordered from off-site storage and could take several days to arrive on campus.
If you have questions about materials in the archives or use of the archives, contact Jaimie Fritz, Project Archivist.
