University Archives

We're open to only 2 researchers at a time, Mon.-Fri., 10-4.  We do get booked up pretty quickly and people can't always get appointments as soon as they'd like, so if they wait until the last minute, they may have problems getting one. Additionally over half of our collection is stored at WRLC and we only have deliveries once a week, on Thursdays, so this can also cause a delay in getting access to needed materials.  

Search across our finding aids but a lot of our records aren't described there - either because they haven't been cataloged or because for more recent material there are restrictions on access (unpublished records dating from after 1970 need permission from the GU office which transferred them to be accessed.) I can facilitate access requests but it can frequently take some time to work through them and three weeks may not be enough. If they pick 1970 or earlier records, that issue is removed.  And I can also let them know about uncataloged material that might be useful to their research topics.
