Rules for Research
We do not have a closed reading room, but we require that you stow any food or beverage you have with you away from the research tables and that you leave the room to consume it.
No ink pens are allowed near the materials.
You are welcome to take photos/scans of the materials with your camera or cell phone. There is NOT a photocopier available for patron use.
