Here is the scoop on using Special Collections material:
If you know exactly what you want to look at or if you need help tracking down a particular title or collection, contactSpecial Collections staff. The majority of the book and manuscript/archives collections are housed off-site, so it may take a few days to retrieve material based on its location. Staff members will contact you as soon as the materials you need are ready for use. All researchers are required to register with the department (registration is valid for the entire fiscal year), and that a staff member may ask to see a photo i.d. The materials will need to be used in the department's Reading Room and can be kept on hold for as long as you need them.
