Online Reference Request

In order to help us serve you most efficiently, please use the form below to submit your question. Due to the high volume of requests that we receive, Special Collections can only answer reference questions concerning materials unique to our collections. We do not answer general reference questions and cannot undertake in-depth picture research. We allot 45 minutes of research per reference request. Learn more.

If you would like to order high-resolution digital scans of items from Special Collections and you already have the item information, please proceed directly to the Digitization Services Request Form.

Your Information
We respond to all requests by email, but may also need to send materials by regular postal mail.
