After your class visit to the Hunter College Archives, you may return on your own to look at the same archival documents or other documents. To do so you must make an appointment in advance using the Archives Request Form linked on the Archives page.
Note the Archives hours: Monday - Friday, 10 AM - 4 PM.
Your request form should indicate precisely what materials you would like to see. Use the Archives Finding Aids to identify the documents you need (see below for more details). When requesting materials, indicate a collection name and box & folder numbers.
You may also find the Archives & Special Collections Research Guide helpful.
Start your research from our Archives home page. You can get there from the link listed here, or start from the Hunter College Libraries home page, click on "branches" on the top left, and select "Archives & Special Collections."
From the Archives home page, click on Archival Collections/Finding Aids.
From that page you can browse a list of the collections available in our Archives, and use the finding aids to identify individual documents that might be useful for your research. Finding aids include a description of a collection and a list of items in the collection, along with their box and folder numbers. Finding aids do not include digitized documents from the archive.
Once you've identified the material you want to use, you can fill out an Archives Request Form to make an appointment to come see them in the Archives reading room.
For additional help, email email@example.com.
