Due to the increasing demand by students for use of Special Collections and Hamilton College Archives materials, the Rare Book Room will be open from 5:30 to 9:30 PM on Wednesdays and 4:00 until 8:00 PM on Sundays.
Students must contact Christian Goodwillie or Mark Tillson to request materials from Special Collections by 3:00 Wednesday afternoon, or 2:00 Friday afternoon. For items from the Archives, contact Katherine Collett by 10:00 Friday morning (earlier in the week if possible), so that items can be pulled and taken to the Rare Book Room. Only items paged in advance will be available for use during these Sunday hours. We will reply to your e-mailed requests confirming the availability of materials.
We hope that students will take advantage of this opportunity to work with some of the treasures in the Special Collections and Hamilton College Archives.
