THE FOLLOWING VISITOR INFORMATION IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE DEPENDING ON FIT ADMINISTRATION DIRECTION. PLEASE WRITE THE UNIT AT [email protected] FOR CURRENT INFORMATION; THANK YOU.

During normal semester operations, SPARC faculty and staff are happy to host FIT community members for research appointments to be held in the SPARC Reading Room, Goodman Center Room E435. To the best of our ability, we will host non-FIT community researchers, too.

A maximum of three (3) researchers will be allowed appointments per day/per time slot, which represents one-half (1/2) capacity. Researchers will be required to supply their own pencils and other supplies and/or equipment for personal use.
 
Appointments for non-FIT community researchers will be held at the discretion of the College Archivist.

A maximum of three (3) linear feet of material will be available for a given appointment. All materials are paged for researchers; nitrile gloves must be used by all parties at all times when handling materials.
 

To request an appointment, please contact the us at [email protected] or call (212) 217-4385. Please contact us at least 24 hours before you would like to conduct your research, letting us know which items from our holdings you would like to view. In the event you need to cancel or delay your appointment we ask that you inform us as soon as possible. 

Please see our Research section for assistance with a line of inquiry and for questions about your visit.

If you've visited us before, we'd love to hear about your experience!
