Research Fees

The Center staff understand that researchers can not always come to use the library and its resources in person. We encourage you to conduct as much research online as possible, and if extended research by a Center staff member is necessary, the time is charged at $25 per hour.

While Delaney Library and Archives staff strive to fulfill all requests as soon as possible, please allow up to 5 days for reference and retrieval requests. Involved research or image duplication requests may require a longer response time; please contact a staff member for an estimated time of delivery.
