Special Collections and University Archives Materials in Offsite Storage

Due to limited space in Hornbake Library, some archival and book collections are housed in an offsite storage facility. These collections are open for research and may be requested by researchers. Please allow up to 4 business days for any of these materials to be delivered to the Maryland Room for your research. Special Collections and University Archives staff will notify you if your request includes offsite materials.
