Special Collections Reference Assistance

Special Collections staff welcomes reference requests from all researchers. We encourage researchers to visit our collections and take advantage of our assistance on-site.

You don't need an appointment to use our collections, except in the case of group and class visits and orientations (see visitor info for details). A qualified staff person is always on duty in the Reading Room to assist with research. Please check our hours of operation prior to coming to the library.

How to Send a Reference Request

Virtual reference and research requests will be accepted at the discretion of the Special Collections librarian. Please send your inquiries to the Special Collections librarian, Debra Kimok, at debra.kimok@plattsburgh.edu.

Please review the Find Materials in Special Collections guide prior to sending e-mail requests for information.
