The de Saisset welcomes requests from students, faculty, staff, and outside researchers to use the collection. We aim to support your work and will make the collection as accessible as possible.

Access Guidelines

  • Specific objects must be requested in advance. Due to the size of our collection and the demands of its care we are unable to accommodate "browsing."
  • Please provide as much advanced notice as possible for your request. It may take up to 2-4 weeks to arrange an appointment, depending on the complexity and size of the request.
  • Requests are met on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • Access to the collection is provided during normal business hours.
