A Librarian or Archivist will contact you in a timely manner.

Consultations on Research in the Collections

Ready Reference

Reference librarians will look up definitions, facts, and other historical information. For questions that can be answered with in-house resources in 30 minutes or less, there is no charge for ready reference.

Extended Research Services

Reference librarians will provide research for and answer reference questions from long-distance clients. However, due to constraints of time and resources necessary in discovery of more extensive research and reference queries, reasonable fees will apply.
