Research Services from Manuscript Collections

When researchers request materials via email or phone, we must take the time to review the collections and identify materials. The first sixty minutes of staff research time is free of charge. Additional time is charged at a rate of $15.00 per half-hour. The research fee is in addition to any reproduction fees.

Research requests from on-site users take precedence; request from remote users will be handled as time and staffing allow.
