About the Division
Visiting the Collection
Can researchers walk in to access the collection?
Yes, we offer walk-in access to our general research collections, including audio and moving image materials, on the third floor of the Library for the Performing Arts. Our circulating collections are available on the first and second floors of the Library.
Researchers may access our special collections in the Special Collections Reading Room by emailing email@example.com or by booking a virtual consultation with one of our librarians, who will make an appointment for you to visit the Library for the Performing Arts. A limited number of same-day walk-in appointments may be available for special collections material.
