SCUA On-site Research Procedures
Before Your Visit
Research visits must be scheduled in advance. Visits can be scheduled using the Materials and Appointment Request Form. We request that you schedule your appointment with at least 24 hours advance notice to ensure materials are retrieved for you before your session. Reading room capacity is limited to 8 researchers at a time.
During Your Visit
All researchers must wash their hands before using collections, or wear nitrile gloves when required while handling materials. Researchers also are encouraged to wash their hands after using materials.
Researchers are encouraged to use a laptop, tablet, or smartphone to take notes. We also have paper available for note taking.
Researchers are encouraged to bring a pencil for note taking. If a researcher uses a department pencil, they should take it with them at the end of their visit. All other use and handling rules still apply.
