Having trouble finding available appointments? Planning a multi-day visit? Contact library staff at to discuss what options may be available for you. We do hold additional appointments aside for flexibility.

Booking and cancellation policies: When making reservations, keep in mind that research space is limited. Please only schedule appointments you intend to keep. If you no longer need or cannot make your appointment, please cancel each slot as soon as possible to make room for other researchers.

Please note that appointments are for one person. If you're planning to bring another researcher, please schedule an additional appointment for each time slot under that person's name.

Mask Policy: HSP currently requires the use of face masks in all public areas except those designated for eating. If you arrive on your day of research without a mask, we cannot allow you to enter the library. If you're sick or feeling unwell, please cancel or reschedule your appointment for a later date.
