(Research schedules during inter-session may vary.) Since our staff is small, variations in the schedule are sometimes necessary; therefore, patrons are encouraged to call the office to make an appointment for research. Visit our Website


    Reference Services

    Researchers who are unable to visit Special Collections may submit inquiries via standard mail, telephone, or e-mail. Special Collections staff will be able to spend a limited amount of time researching your question. Staff may also be able to refer researchers to other resources on and off campus. Our small staff, however, cannot undertake extensive research.


    Guidelines for Using Special Collections

    All Researchers are required to fill out a researchers application when visiting Special Collections. It can be found to the right under forms. There are certain limitations to what can be brought into Special Collections, and used during a research visit. The policy governing use of Special Collections and the Flannery O'Connor Collection can be found to the right.
