Requesting Materials in the Library
For books listed in Tripod that are not marked as reference, fill out a call slip or print the information on the screen and present it to the person on reference duty. Be sure to fill out the entire call number correctly in the upper left corner, with the title and author and your name in the appropriate blanks. For microfilm of meeting records, fill out a yellow slip. Due to the fragility of the original records, we require that you use microfilm whenever available. Microfilm must be paged by a staff member.
All of the books shelved in the Reading Room are marked "Reference" and may be taken off the shelf by our patrons. When you are finished with a volume, please place it on the black cart next to the reference desk.
Friends Historical Library is a reference library, and, as a general rule, materials do not circulate.
Please see our Copies and Permissions page.
Rest rooms are located in the main College Library (McCabe), either one floor above or one floor below the Reading Room of Friends Historical Library; please follow the signs on each floor. There is an elevator past the McCabe Circulation desk for use by handicapped visitors.
