Reference Request Policies

The collections staff can provide researchers with answers to reference questions.

Reference questions are those that can be answered with a minimal amount of research. Examples of reference questions include:

“Did John Doe belong to the Union League or the MOLLUS?”
“Do you have anything related to John Doe?”
“Do you have the book The Civil War by John Doe?”

To make a reference request, please e-mail, or call 215.587.5568.
