So that we may provide more efficient help, please direct all research questions, requests for images, and questions about citations through our question form or to our departmental telephone line at (817) 257-4566. Email and voice messages to individuals may result in a delayed response.

We can best assist you if we know you are coming. If you plan to do extensive research or will be traveling from out of town, please contact us in advance to plan your research trip. We will discuss with you the date of your visit and the research resources of most potential use to you so that we can help you get the maximum benefit from the time you spend in Special Collections.
