Policies & Guidelines for Researchers

We maintain a closed stacks reading room for access to Special Collections and FIT Institutional Archives materials.  All materials are paged prior to your visit: this means books and other materials are retrieved for researchers to view in the reading room and that all material is non-circulating.  When scheduling an appointment you will be asked for specific titles and call numbers, use StyleCat Online Catalog to find this information.  Please consult Research Help for further assistance.

The wide range of primary research sources housed in Special Collections are often rare, fragile and valuable.  To protect these collections the following prohibitions are enforced during researcher visits:

    No pens or markers: we are happy to provide pencils.
    No food, beverages (including water), gum.
    Photography is permitted but requires a completed Permission to Reproduce form.
    Only laptops and digital cameras are allowed for use in the Reading Room your other belongings will be sequestered during your visit.
    Please bring a valid photo ID.
    Please silence your cell phones.
