Using the Collections

The Robert Delaney Southwest Research Library and Archives is a research library that houses an open-stack book and periodical collection as well as special archival collections. Its collections are open to use by any user. The Delaney Library is circulating select material according to the Library Material Loan Policy. Students and researchers are encouraged to do preliminary research to locate materials.

Archival collections are not available for check-out. Archival materials are housed in closed storage archives due to their special or rare nature and are brought to the research room for monitored use. While the Delaney Library promotes the use of its collections, special handling requirements may have to be used to ensure their preservation for future use.
