Divinity Library Special Collections
Information for Researchers
Beginning Wednesday November 25, 2020, through at least Monday, January 4, 2021:
Watch this site for updates regarding Divinity Library services for the month of January 2021 and Yale University's Spring term.
The Special Collections Reading Room is located on the ground floor of the Divinity Library. If you have questions about access, please call (203) 432-5301 or email email@example.com. See the Library's Planning Your Research Visit page for directions, parking information, and lodging possibilities.
Requests for material should be made through Archives at Yale for archival material and Orbis for restricted circulation published materials and microforms. It is important to note that most collections are stored at an off-campus shelving facility so if you wish to examine material from these collections in the Special Collections Reading Room on the day of your arrival at the Divinity Library, you must submit your request in advance. You will receive an email message when the materials are available.
All researchers must agree to the terms governing use of the Divinity Library's Special Collections.
Please address reference inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We encourage researchers to visit the Divinity Library in person in order to take advantage of its valuable complementary collections but recognize that in-person visits may not be possible for all. We are willing to respond to remote requests for information and for copies of materials according to our stated reproduction policies.
The following are possible options to explore in order to locate a research assistant for hire. You will need to be able to describe your research needs succinctly in order to utilize any of these services. Be sure to include any special research skills required, such as languages.
