Researchers in SC&A

All researchers are welcome to consult materials in the care of Special Collections & Archives. Non-Wesleyan users will be asked to complete an Off-Campus User Registration form and to present two forms of identification.

It is strongly recommended that visiting researchers contact SC&A at least one week prior to arriving to discuss the research project and use of the appropriate materials. Many collections are in storage and require 24 hours or more for retrieval.

Please note that reading room hours are Monday-Friday, 1-5pm during the school year, and by appointment only during the summer. Additional reading room hours are available by appointment during the school year, but are dependent on the availability of staff. Please request additional hours in advance of your scheduled arrival.  Please contact us at or 860-685-3864.

All researchers must abide by our guidelines. Please ask a staff member if you have questions.
