How can I use the archive?
Please contact our archivist about getting access to materials from the Meadville Lombard Archives and Special Collections. In most cases, materials are only available for use on campus and in our reading room. Because some of our materials are stored off-site, please contact the archivist at least two weeks before you need to use the materials.
In some cases, and within reason, we can scan selected material at your request and send you a high-quality scan of the item(s) you need.
