Archives & Special Collections staff can assist you in accessing material in the collection, however because our collection is housed off-site there will be a paging delay. Please plan in advance to allow two to three days for staff to retrieve your requested items before your appointment. To schedule a research appointment please contact Archives & Special Collections at (210) 784-1512 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Appointments are generally made at between 9:00 am and 4:00 pm, Monday through Friday. Appointments can be made via email at email@example.com or by calling (210) 784-1512.
Bring a jacket. The air is maintained at a cool temperature in order to preserve the archival materials.
Be prepared to read and sign the A&SC use policies, including but not limited to the Research Policy & Reading Room Rules. Personal bags and backpacks are kept in lockers while materials are in use. No materials leave the building.
When making your appointment, know what items you want to view by checking the library catalog. If you are not sure about specific titles or documents but have a topic, staff can help you determine which items in the collection would be useful. All materials are stored off-site and must be retrieved before your visit.
