Q. Can I access non-circulating and special collections materials?


Access to non-circulating and special collections material at the Kislak Center for Special Collections, Rare Books and Manuscripts and the Perkins Rare Book Room in the Fisher Fine Arts Library is available primarily through digital reprographic scanning and remote curator consultations.

Patrons can place digital reprographic scanning orders via the Aeon request system. We will offer free (up to 500 pages or 5 items) digitization-on-demand services for collection material. Please note: Reprographic requests for instruction-related and grant-required needs will be prioritized.

Patrons can also request remote consultations with Kislak Center curators (up to 1 hour in length) by emailing kislak@upenn.edu. Any needed collection material will be shown via a document camera.

Additional information about remote instructional services, as well as online resources for teaching and research, can be found in these Resources for Remote Learning.
