The Faber Birren Collection of Books on Color is a non-circulating research collection. Access is limited because of the
rare and often delicate nature of the materials, but onsite items may be paged through the front desk of
the Special Collections Reading Room in the Robert B. Haas Family Arts Library at 180 York Street. On site items may be requested the same day. Items at the LSF (with Orbis message "Contact Haas Arts Library Spec. Coll. Staff to Request Item") must be requested at least 2 business days in advance. Requests can be made in person or through the Arts Library Special Collections Request Form. Each reader must fill out a registration form and a picture ID must be left on deposit while the item from
the Birren Collection is in use.
To browse the collection researchers may use the online database which contains a complete record of all holdings,
as well as any available images. Reference queries should be directed to
email@example.com. Researchers requiring
in-depth assistance are encouraged to make an appointment with
Jae Jennifer Rossman, Special Collections Librarian, Arts Library. Research appointments must be scheduled in advance and
will be at the discretion of the librarian according to her availability. Hour-long research appointments will be available
between the hours of 9 am and 5 pm on Monday through Friday. Researchers traveling from a distance may request
additional consideration. To schedule a class visit, contact Jae Rossman well in advance to
discuss your needs.
