Research by appointment only resuming Jan. 11

While the Fisher Library will be open to in-person visits for researchers beginning the week of January 10, please note that these visits to our reading room are currently limited due to the evolving public health situation. As such, permission will be required to access the reading room. The room will also be restricted to two readers only per session.

We encourage you to continue to use our scanning service for researchers.

In order to visit the library and use the reading room, please send an e-mail to the Fisher's general e-mail address (click on link) and outline the reasons why it is necessary to consult the physical items.

Once approval to consult items on site has been given, researchers may submit their request through the library's stack retrieval form, which will be sent in a separate e-mail.

Since the library remains closed to the general public, researchers will be met at the library doors promptly at the time of the appointment given them by library staff who will then escort them to the reading room. All researchers must wear a mask at all times when inside the building.

The Reading Room will be accessible Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays only, and approved researchers will be able to apply for appointments on those days in two separate blocks, between 9am-12pm and 1pm-3pm.

Retrieval requests must be submitted before noon on the day before the approved visit. If you have any other questions, please contact the Fisher's Director.
