Due to the variety of resource material in our collections as well as limited staff resources, a personal visit is strongly encouraged. For a fee, a preliminary research service is available for those who are unable to visit our library in person. Our research service cannot, in general, exceed 1 hour of investigation. Successful results cannot be guaranteed.
