Many collections are available for research to the public, although unprocessed college records and manuscript collections are not accessible for research until they are organized with an access policy in place outlining material use. Due to the unique nature of these materials, these collections do not circulate and we ask our patrons to observe the following guidelines:

Research Guidelines

  1. Researchers must register during their visit.
  2. Materials must be used in the College Archives & Special Collections reading room.
  3. Food nor drinks are allowed.
  4. Researchers must use pencil or an electronic device for notetaking.
  5. Care must be taken in handling all collection material.
  6. The original order of all collection material must be maintained.

Reproduction Guidelines

  1. Photocopying is available at $0.10 per page and all photocopying is performed by staff. The Archives reserves the right to limit copies made and to refuse to copy an item if such copying will damage the material. Copies of entire books, manuscript collections or archival record groups are not made. We also reserve the right to refuse to copy material which in our judgment would involve violation of copyright law.
  2. Reproduction of photographs, videos or other audiovisual material will be handled by staff. Please consult with the College Archivist concerning fees, time schedules, and restrictions.
  3. Readers who wish to publish, reprint or reproduce materials in the collection must request permission in writing from the College Archivist.
