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

Currently, the Special Collections Research Center (SCRC) remains closed. SCRC staff are available to assist Mason community members with reference support via email at speccoll@gmu.edu.

Additionally, SCRC offers virtual services and consultations. Research in the Special Collections Research Center Reading Room is by appointment only. Notice of at least 3 business days prior to a visit is required. Masks and social distancing are mandatory for access to the Reading Room. Please note: materials will be quarantined after completed use by each individual for 72 hours.

To make an appointment to visit SCRC, please contact 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.
