Please be advised that due to the ongoing Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) outbreak, Houghton Library is closed to researchers. Given the fluid and evolving nature of the situation, we do not currently have a date on which the Houghton Reading Room will reopen. Staff will still be monitoring submitted questions and answering those we can (without access to collections).
Requests for copies of previously digitized collection items will be fulfilled by library staff as they are received.
We do have a limited number of library staff on site who are available to fulfill reproduction requests for previously undigitized collection materials.
If you are interested in making a photoduplication request, you may place your order through your HOLLIS Special Request Account. See our step-by-step instructions for registering for an account and placing your requests.
Please be advised that due to reduced on-site staffing, newly implemented workflows and safety protocols, order fulfillment may take longer than expected. We appreciate your patience.
In August 2019, Houghton Library began a year-long renovation. Our goal: to make the building more accessible and welcoming while enhancing research and teaching spaces. Find out more.
