The Archives holdings are open to faculty, staff, students and the public for research.  Reference assistance is available to help in determining the records appropriate for specific research, but individuals must be prepared to carry out their own research. 

Archives' staff will retrieve archival materials for researchers and these materials must be viewed in the Reading Room. All researchers are expected to follow the Use Regulations.
