Ask the Archivists

No matter how detailed the collection description, it just isn’t possible to capture all of the potential housed within our collections. We’re happy to help develop a list of likely collections to consult and/or share specific knowledge of particularly good options.

Individual staff members know different collections especially well. Call or email the contact person listed to the right under Contacts and she will forward your question to the appropriate “expert.”
