Special Collections Visitors

Special Collections at Firestone Library and Mudd Manuscript Library are open to the public without an appointment. If you do not yet have an access card, you will need to check in with the front desk at Mudd and the Access Desk at Firestone upon your arrival. 

You are also welcome to complete our online application, which will allow you to pick up your card from the Access Desk from 9am to 7pm all seven days of the week. We will email you when your card is ready to be picked up. Please note that the application will ask you to upload a passport style photo that we will use on your card, and for a photo of your government-issued ID. 

Please also be sure to create your Special Collections researcher account prior to your arrival at the library. 

More information about accessing Special Collections can be found on the Access Services page on the website. For questions, please reach out directly to Special Collections.
