               Special Collections Reading Room Has
                             Temporarily Moved

 During the major renovation project of the Mary Couts Burnett Library, the Special Collections reading room has moved to a
 temporary location. You can find us in Room 219A through August 2015.

 Special Collections is operational during the renovation, however, we strongly encourage researchers to contact us via e-mail, or by phone at 817-257-7108 prior to your visit.

 NOTE: The Jim Wright Papers, Amon G. Carter Papers and other collections have been moved off-site during the renovation.
 Requests for materials stored off-site are required in advance of research visits so staff can retrieve in a timely manner.
