AUM Library Archives & Special Collections Department-Appointment Policy
In response to the outbreak of COVID-19, the AUM Library continues to work in close partnership with the University and our campus partners to take the necessary steps to protect and safeguard our community. The safety and wellbeing of our AUM Library users and staff is our utmost priority.
Taking into consideration the public health recommendations for social distancing and reduced staff capacity in the short-term, the Archives & Special Collections Department will be open by *Appointment Only*. Appointments will be available between 8:15am - 4:15pm on Mon, Tue, Wed, and Fri. If you need an appointment outside of those days/times, please contact the Archives staff to see if other arrangements can be made. For in-person research requests, patrons should contact the department at least 24 hours in advance of their preferred appointment time.
Please include in your appointment request a list of all materials you wish to access. If it is possible for us to digitize and provide your requested materials remotely, we will do so. To support remote access, digitized scans of materials sent via email are available free of charge.
To make an appointment or consult with Archives & Special Collections staff, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 334-244-3213.
