Patrons requesting materials in advance will have access to IHRC materials in the Elmer L. Andersen Library Reading Room on Saturdays from 9 am to 1 pm, starting Sept. 6, 2008. Limited services will be available in the Reading Room for all special collections at Andersen Library.
IHRC materials will need to be requested during the week prior to Saturday hours, with no requests accepted after noon on Friday. Researcher requests will be fulfilled on a first-come, first-served basis, so please contact staff as early in the week as possible to make sure materials are available for Saturday research visits.
As always, researchers are strongly encouraged to discuss projects with IHRC collections staff in order to gain advice about additional materials that may be of interest. Advance notice allows staff to narrow requests to a smaller volume of documents, photos, or other items from the IHRC large collections.
Materials with usage restrictions and publications kept in the IHRC office suite will not be available during Saturday hours. For more information about IHRC holdings and extended hours, please e-mail the IHRC.
