Researchers using special collections should register for account
Beginning August 1, Special Collections and University Archives librarians
will begin using an online management tool to streamline requests for materials
After registering for an account, you will be able to:
- request materials directly from the online catalog/finding aid,
- view current/past requests, and
- submit scanning/photocopy requests from any computer.
Requesting materials in advance and completing use-agreement forms online
will save you time in the reading room and allow you to better monitor requests.
By automating registration, collection retrieval requests, statistics
gathering, and duplication requests, the system also helps librarians better
understand your needs.
Special collections are materials owned by the
University Libraries that because of their rarity or format are distinguished
from the general collections and have different policies regarding their use.
Most special collections and primary research materials are housed in Hornbake
Library, where researchers may use materials in the Maryland Room, or in the
Michelle Smith Performing Arts Library.

account and start using the new system today.
