Access to Materials



Lear Center collections are stored in closed stacks. All materials are housed on campus, allowing for retrieval in less than 24 hours. In some circumstances we may be able to retrieve items for you while you wait, though it is always best for you to contact us in advance to ensure that your books and manuscripts are ready for you when you arrive. All researchers must fill out a reader registration form and show a photo ID (Conn College ID is acceptable).
