Although staff try to accommodate a reader’s first choice and travel plans, be aware that orientation appointments are limited and filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
Plan to arrive at the library for your orientation appointment time. You may begin working in the reading room after the orientation.
When making your request for a seat in the reading room, we recommend requesting at least two preferred sessions in case your first choice no longer has orientation sessions available.
Be advised: new readers and renewing readers receive a brief library orientation before accessing the library and reading rooms.
