:: REQUESTING ACCESS TO RESTRICTED UNIVERSITY RECORDS
Only Yale faculty, students and staff
may request access to restricted university records. In order to
request access, you must first identify the materials you would
like to examine by consulting the finding aid for the records. If
you have not consulted the finding aid, or have questions about
the contents of the records, please contact the University Archives
Next, send an email to email@example.com,
specifying the following:
1. Purpose of Request
Succinctly state the scope and purpose of your project and why you believe
the material requested is relevant to your research. Also, indicate your anticipated
date(s) of visit and any deadlines you may be under.
2. Material Requested
List the Record Units (RU), Accessions (ACCN), Boxes, and Folders
for the material you wish to access.
3. Contact Information
The director of Manuscripts and Archives will forward the request
to the Yale Secretary’s Office, where the decision to grant
or deny access will be made. Please note that requests for access
are processed in the order in which they are received and as staff
time permits. Researchers should allow a minimum of two to four
weeks for processing.
Questions can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
