Research and Access:
Finding Aids and Research Services
The museum’s library is a research library that houses its collections in closed-stack areas, which are climate-controlled with monitored temperature and relative humidity. The library collection does not circulate as a lending library nor does it loan its materials. Access to the library is by appointment only and there are fees associated with its use and reproduction of its records.
In an effort to provide access and improved customer service to potential researchers, the library posts its finding aids online in electronic format. The following finding aids are intended to provide awareness of some of the resources available at the Hays T. Watkins Research Library. New finding aides are posted when they become available.
