The archival materials described in this guide may be used in the reading room of the David M. Rubenstein Rare Book & Manuscript Library. Patrons must Register as a Rubenstein Library patron before they can request materials for use in the reading room.
Requesting material for use in Rubnestein Reading Room

- Locate the appropriate collection (via library's online catalog or list of archival collection guides)
- Click on the green "Request for On-Site Use" button (upper right-hand corner)
- Select the box you want to request by clicking the request link next to the item in question
You will receive an e-mail when the material you have requested is available for use in the Rubnestein reading room.
