|INFORMATION FOR RESEARCHERS :: ORDERING AND PAYING
The researcher may place an order in-person, write to Manuscripts and Archives, Yale University Library, P.O. Box 208240, New Haven, CT 06520-8240, call our front desk at (203) 432-1735, or submit an electronic order request form.
Prepayment is required for all orders. We accept cash, checks, money orders, interdepartmental transfers, and most major credit cards. All payments must be in U.S. dollars, and checks must be drawn on a U.S. bank. There is a dishonored check charge of $20.00 for any check returned by the bank.
We assess shipping and handling charges where applicable; orders received in-person and mail orders from Connecticut will be charged the current rate for state sales tax.
Manuscripts and Archives reserves the right to assess a fee when materials for which Yale University holds the copyright are used in commercial productions or distributions.
Due to the volume of requests and staffing constraints, the reference staff can spend no more than one hour assisting patrons at a distance in identifying materials to be reproduced and in preparing the order forms. Patrons who submit reproduction requests requiring more than one hour of staff time will be asked to do the additional work in person or to hire a research assistant.
