General Timeline for Resumption of Manuscripts & Archives Services
Beginning Wednesday, September 1, 2021, through Wednesday, December 22, 2021:
In response to the pandemic, Manuscripts and Archives remains open only to Yale faculty, students, and staff who have been approved to be on campus during Fall term. At this point the university has not given us permission to admit Yale retirees, family members, alumni, other Yale affiliates, or the public. We will update this information if that situation changes during Fall term. Please continue to monitor our website or the Library'sCOVID-19 Update: Library Reopening FAQfor updates. We regret any inconvenience, and we look forward to welcoming our extended research community back into our reading room when Yale's public health guidance permits it.
The Manuscripts & Archives Reading Room is open by appointment only (no drop-in access is available) from 9:00 AM-4:30 PM, on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursday,s and Fridays, and from 10 AM-4:30 PM on Wednesdays.
Please contact Ask Yale Library if you have questions about your status to access the library and special collections reading rooms.
Staff members are offering reference and consultation services: email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please allow 3-4 weeks for a response to your query.
Instructions for ordering reproductions of items from the library's special collections are included in our Digitization Services guide, here: https://guides.library.yale.edu/c.php?g=1059325&p=8571876.
