What if I would like to use the Special Collections Research Center?

SCRC offers a mix of in-person and virtual options for researchers.

CURRENT STATUS: SCRC is offering appointment-only hours for in-person visits. Please contact speccoll@gmu.edu to request an appointment time. Walk-in hours are currently on pause.

Appointments must be scheduled at least 24 hours in advance. To make an appointment to visit SCRC, please contact speccoll@gmu.edu.

Reading Room capacity may be limited to allow for adequate spacing. Check Mason's current Face Covering Level to determine if a mask is required for your visit.

SCRC staff are available to assist with off-site reference support via e-mail at speccoll@gmu.edu.

If you are interested in SCRC instruction for your classes, please contact Brittney Falter with questions about instruction options. SCRC staff will work with Mason faculty to assist in virtual instruction when possible for your classes.
