Reference - Offsite Materials - Web Offsite Form
Due to space limitations, many of the Center for American History's collections are stored offsite in the Library Storage Facility (LSF) and in the Collections Deposit Library (CDL). To determine if the collection you're interested in is stored offsite, contact the Reference Staff.
The delivery schedule for the collections stored at the Library Storage Facility (LSF) has been affected by University wide cost cutting measures. Until further notice, offsite materials from LSF will be delivered only three times weekly.
Due to temporary staffing shortages, items stored in the Collections Deposit Library (CDL) will be retrieved only once a week, on Wednesdays.
Because of storage shortages for retrieved offsite collections, retrievals are limited to 7 items per day. There is no rush schedule for retrieval. You will be contacted when your order has arrived and is ready for use in the Reading Room. Materials retrieved from offsite storage will be stored onsite for a limited amount of time only.
To request materials from offsite storage, please complete the form below. Required fields are marked with an asterisk (*). We will not process requests with incomplete information.
