Research Consultation

Special Collections offers reference services on-site Monday through Friday, 9:00 am-5:00 pm during Fall and Spring Semesters.

The reference staff at Special Collections is committed to helping you navigate the enormous range of resources available to you and assuring that you are comfortable using them. The best way to understand the collections and how they may assist you in your research or teaching is to stop by and talk to a member of our reference staff. They can help you develop strategies for effectively searching the Library Catalog and help you probe the archival and manuscript collections. You may also send your queries to specol@usc.edu.

If you have any questions or need special arrangements, please contact: specol@usc.edu
