Closed Collections Schedule

The Beinecke offers the following lists of closures, which are subject to change and updated regularly: a list of printed materials closed for processing arranged by call number range; an alphabetical list of material closed for digitization; an alphabetical list of manuscript material closed for processing, resulting in extended closures.

The Beinecke is an active research library, and in addition to materials on this list, individual items may be already in use and therefore unavailable at the time they are requested for research. These uses may include classes, loans, exhibits, conservation, and use by other researchers in the reading room. The Beinecke is also a large library, with staff working with collections in multiple locations. Therefore, additional time may be required to provide access to some items.
