All collections, except for items deemed confidential by donors, are for the use of RIT students, alumni, faculty, staff, administrators and independent researchers.
Materials in this area do not circulate and are paged for patrons - it is a closed stack area with a supervised reading room.
When the condition of materials permits, they may be photocopied or photographed.
Records of most materials can be accessed through the RIT Libraries Catalog . Other items can be found through special finding aids and the personal assistance of the Archives and Special Collections staff.
