Searching for Collections in Special Collections and University Archives
Each of our collection guides (aka finding aids) on ArchivesSpace contains a button to request materials in the upper right hand corner. This button links directly to the collection record in the UO Libraries catalog.
In order to request materials, researchers must have a library account. UO faculty, staff, and students can login to their account using their Duck ID. The general public can apply for an account following these registration instructions.
Please review our detailed instructions about how to request materials via the UO Libraries catalog. Requests must be placed at least 5 business days in advance. You will receive an email confirmation once your material(s) are successfully retrieved and ready for viewing in our reading room during our open hours.
A forthcoming tutorial will provide advanced instructions on how to use this discovery tool.
