Researchers wishing to visit Bywaters Special Collections are requested to make appointments in advance, explain their projects, and define their specific areas of interest so that the required materials can be assembled and the appropriate curator made available.
Materials are non-circulating and are to be used only in the research room. No item will be used elsewhere under any circumstances. The use of certain items may be restricted, depending on their physical condition. All visits are staff-assisted and personal books and papers taken into the research room are subject to examination upon departure.
