We hope your research visit to the Lewis Walpole Library was fruitful. You are welcome to return.
If you would like to stay at the Timothy Root House for a future research visit, please let us know. We can offer a room for use for up to a week, during the time spent working at the Library in Farmington, on a space available basis. You will need to make other arrangements for accommodations for time spent using the collections in New Haven.
Help us spread the word about the Library and the Visiting Scholar opportunities--tell your colleagues about us.
Should your contact information change, email us at email@example.com
Please keep in touch!
As a Fellowship award recipient, you are expected to write a brief report of two to three pages outlining how you used the collection and what materials you found most helpful. Please turn the report in at the end of your residency before you leave or send it shortly thereafter by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, mail to the address below, or fax to 860-677-6369.
Scholars' Progress Blog Post
Write a blog post for our Scholars' Progress blog. It can be on an interesting discovery or new connections you've made, a particular item or items that made an impact on you, an area of research that perhaps the library isn't known for, or anything that you encountered in the collections that really spoke to you during your Fellowship. Posts should be fairly informal, and about 1000-1500 words in length.
Please take the time to fill out our online survey. Your responses, which will remain anonymous, will help us improve our future Visiting Scholar experiences. The survey should take between five and fifteen minutes to complete. Please click or tap on the following link. Thank you!
Reimbursement of any out-of-pocket expenses, as well as per diem payments, for 4-week and 8-week visiting scholars will be sent to you by check, in US dollars, upon completion of your residency. You may email your reimbursable expense receipts to the Senior Administrative Assistant, Michelle Privée: email@example.com.
If you prefer to mail your receipts via the post, send them to:
The Lewis Walpole Library
PO Box 1408
Farmington, CT 06034
Attn: Michelle Privée
For Visiting Fellows and Travel Grant Recipients PLEASE NOTE: Your reimbursement check will be mailed to whatever home address you have provided in your Visiting Scholar Travel Information Form, unless an alternative address is designated on the form. PLEASE MAKE SURE that the Senior Administrative Assistant has your correct address before you leave.
International Visiting Scholars must fill out Yale's International Information Form (IIF) before leaving. This form can be obtained from the Sr. Administrative Assistant.
