Using Special Collections

Special Collections encourages researcher requests via e-mail, telephone, and in person. Materials do not circulate but may be consulted in the Special Collections reading room. Reproductions may also be requested.

Although the Special Collections reading room is housed in the newly renovated Linderman Library, many of our collections are stored in remote locations. We make every effort to bring requests of reasonable size to our reading room within 24 business hours.

  • Researchers with Lehigh IDs should use the request form to obtain Special Collections materials in remote storage.
  • Non-Lehigh users are encouraged to call (610-758-4506) or email Special Collections staff to arrange retrieval.
