Conduct in-depth research using our collections, quietly study in the Kelsey Reading Room, or explore two floors of exhibitions at Cushing Memorial Library and Archives.

Plan Your Visit

All patrons must be registered in Cushing Online Request System (Aeon) to request materials, duplication, and in order to use the Kelsey Reading Room.


Because of their value and rarity, special collections are housed in secured stack areas and made available for research in the Reading Room. Prior to their first visit or upon arrival at the library, patrons are advised to please read Cushing Library’s policies.

Curators by Area

Our team of curators and archivists are available to answer reference questions and provide subject-specific consultations.
