Because of their unique, rare or fragile nature, our collections are housed in closed stacks and are non-circulating; therefore, browsing of the stacks is not allowed. Materials must be used in the reading room and under staff supervision.
The contents of archival and manuscript collections can be accessed using our finding aides and by consulting with staff. All monographs housed in Archives and Special Collections are entered in Willamette University's online catalog.
Researchers who know in advance which materials they would like can email the list to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will have the materials ready when you arrive.
