No appointment is required to use rare books and archives, but you are welcome to contact Special Collections and University Archives to get research assistance, schedule a time for your visit, and request materials in advance. This will save you time, because the materials will be ready for you when you get here. If you plan to drop in, please check our calendar of hours first.
UNC Charlotte students, faculty, and staff who would like to schedule a research consultation appointment, or get help with completing an assignment using rare books and archival materials, are welcome to use the Research Consultation Request Form. Choose "Special Collections and University Archives" as the Subject.
