Archival Research Application

Archival visits are by appointment only. They are based on when we can expect to receive materials (processed collections are stored offsite) and staff availability. 
To view materials, please complete and submit the form below. Researchers will be notified as to appointment availability as well as material arrival. This application must be sent at least four weeks before your desired appointment date.
INSTRUCTIONS: Submit one application per collection; i.e., if you request several boxes from one collection, only submit one application. If you are requesting boxes from several collections, you must submit one application for each collection; i.e., requesting ten boxes from the Grace Montañez Davis Papers only requires one application; requesting boxes 3 and 5 from the Edward Roybal Papers and boxes 1 and 2 from the David Sanchez Papers requires two applications (one per collection), not four (one per box).
Due to limited space, we can only support requests for up to 15 boxes.
Staff must be given at least 48 hours' notice before cancellation and/or rescheduling. Without prior notice, materials will be returned to our campus off-site storage facility.
