Class Tours and Research Visits

Class tours (visits) in our Special Collections are available by appointment and are usually conducted in the Reading Room.


Instructional faculty may book a class with their students to view or use specific SC materials or to listen to a general overview of the collection.  Depending on class size, small groups may use the SC Reading Room, while larger groups may be required to use an alternative room in the library building (e.g. Room 507).


Appointments must be arranged in advance with the SC coordinator.  Please complete the appropriate Research Request Form (above).
