Preparing for Your Visit

We look forward to welcoming you to Cushing Memorial Library & Archives, and facilitating your research during your visit. Researchers are encouraged to contact the appropriate curator and/or the Reading Room staff prior to their arrival to arrange for the paging of collections materials. Many collections are housed off-site and require a notice of 5 or more full working days to be pulled.

Upon arrival at Cushing, all visitors will be asked to sign in at the reception desk. Those visitors wishing to use the Reading Room will be issued a locker, where they may leave large items such as bags and coats. The Reading Room is located on the Cushing Library’s second floor; please be prepared to show a photo ID upon entering.

If they have not done so prior to their arrival, first time readers will be asked to register with the Reading Room staff.
