Schedule a Research Appointment

SPARC faculty and staff are happy to host your visit for research appointments to be held in the SPARC Reading Room, Goodman Resource Center, Room E435.

SPARC is a closed-stack collection that cannot be browsed. To view items in our collection, please contact us at least 24 hours before you would like to conduct your research, letting us know the call numbers for which items in our holdings you would like to view. Note that only when a Google Calendar appointment email has been sent that your appointment is confirmed. A maximum of three (3) linear feet of material will be available for a given three-hour appointment. Our research hours are listed below, and are changed every semester.

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