Adler University students, faculty, and staff as well as outside researchers and members of the community can access the archives by appointment during regular Library hours, though requests from Adler University students and faculty have priority. Please contact Ariel Orlov at firstname.lastname@example.org to make an appointment.
Please keep the documents in the order in which you received them. Do not remove individual items from files, volumes or boxes or attempt to re-file the items in your preferred order. Some archival materials within the collections may be fragile. There are some general practices that should be followed by anyone handling these kinds of materials:
While working with documents:
Material in the archives may only be used within the Library and cannot be checked out or removed from the Library. Excluded from this rule are theses and dissertations, which may be checked out by students and faculty for up to two weeks.
Use of all audio and VHS tapes will be handled on a case-by-case basis depending on condition and format. Many VHS tapes will need to be converted to DVDs before being used due to rarity and condition.
Physical condition and restrictions on the use of certain material may affect the ability to reproduce material through photography, scanning, photocopying, or other means of reproduction. Adler University will not copy an original item that is deemed too fragile to survive the handling required for copying, or any item in which copying will likely produce further deterioration. If an item is in good condition, it may be photographed, scanned, or copied for academic purposes. Condition determinations and all reproductions will be made by Library staff. The Library reserves the right to charge a small fee for copies.
