Archives News & Updates
If you need to work with materials in our collections, it is strongly recommended that you make a Research Consultation Appointment Request by filling out the form under the Research @ Special Collections tab.
During this in-person or virtual appointment, Special Collections & Archives staff will work with you to discuss your research needs and make recommendations for which materials in our collections could fit that need. After your Research Consultation Appointment, you will be able to schedule a Research Appointment with Special Collections & Archives staff to come to the reading room and use your requested materials.
As with other public spaces on campus currently, you are required to wear a mask during your time in the Special Collections & Archives Reading Room, and you will be asked to wash your hands before using any research materials. These regulations may change as the semester and academic year progress, so please be sure to check this page for updates regarding use of the Special Collections & Archives reading room.
Special Collections & Archives are located on the 1st floor of the Carnahan-Jackson Center (accessible through the main floor of the Daniel A. Reed Library) on the campus of the State University of New York at Fredonia. View a Google Map of our location.
