Our staff will provide reference services that require up to an hour of staff time to complete. If requested, staff will spend additional time assisting you with your research at the rate of $25.00 per hour. We reserve the right to decline any research or special request if it requires extraordinary staff effort or resources. Staff will do what they can to direct patrons to sources for locating third parties for research assistance, if necessary.These fees are separate from those charged for duplication requests. Payment is required before the product produced is released.
