Planning a Visit

The Prange Collection is open to the public by appointment only. Researchers are required to contact the Curator or Manager of the Prange Collection to discuss their research topics prior to using the collection. Due to staffing limitations, an appointment should be made a minimum of three days in advance of the visit. Please schedule an appointment using our contact us form.

All researchers using the Prange Collection must register for a user account here.   Instructions for creating an account can be found here.  And instructions for requesting materials can be found here.

Original Prange Collection materials are non-circulating and may only be used onsite in the Prange Collection. Microforms of the Newspaper/Magazine collections and English-language collections are available in McKeldin Library.  The microforms are accessible any time that McKeldin Library is open (see the hours of McKeldin Library).

NOTE:  A portion of Campus Drive will be closed through December 2016 due to construction.  The revised Shuttle UM route from the College Park Metro station can be found here.
