Visiting Special Collections
Concordia University Library’s Special Collections is open from Monday to Friday by appointment only to Concordia-affiliated researchers (students, faculty, and staff), the wider research community, and the general public.
All researchers are required to wear a procedure mask (surgical mask) on campus, including while seated in the Reading Room. Researchers are asked to bring with them only what they need to conduct their work. Everything else must be placed in one of the lockers provided.
Should researchers or anyone in their household be exhibiting symptoms of Covid-19, they must reschedule their appointment. It is possible that appointments will be rescheduled should a Special Collections staff member be unable to be present.
Making an appointment
Contact Special Collections at firstname.lastname@example.org at least 3 working days in advance of your desired appointment and let a staff member know what materials you would like to see and when. If you are not sure what would like to consult, a staff member will help guide you and provide you with the tools necessary to learn what is available. Walk-in users cannot be accommodated at this time.
Once you have identified what you would like to see, Special Collections staff will schedule your appointment.
