Special Collections Fall 2020 Services

Scheduling an Appointment

For the safety of Special Collections staff and researchers, no more than four researchers will be allowed in the reading room at a time, and in accordance with state mandate and university policy, researchers will be required to wear face coverings at all times while inside the library.

Advance appointments for University of Arkansas faculty, staff, and students are required. Appointments are available:

  • Monday, 1-4 pm
  • Tuesday, 1-4 pm
  • Wednesday, 1-4 pm
  • Thursday, 1-4 pm
  • Friday, 1-4 pm

For the safety of our researchers, all materials will be quarantined after use. Due to space restrictions, limits apply to the number of materials that can be consulted each day. Contact specoll@uark.edu for more information.

To schedule an appointment, email specoll@uark.edu. A staff member will confirm your appointment.

Note that these policies and procedures are subject to change.

Remote Research

While Special Collections is open at this time only to University of Arkansas faculty, staff, and students, all researchers, regardless of institutional affiliation, are welcome to contact Research Services for remote reference assistance. Email specoll@uark.edu for more information.

Please note that delays may occur as we implement new health and safety guidelines.


Beginning August 10, reproduction services will resume. The patron-accessible scanner in the reading room will not be available, but researchers may bring their own cameras for personal use. Digitization and photocopy services are also available.

Please note that delays may occur as we implement new health and safety guidelines.
