How to Register

Yale University Faculty, Staff, and Students 

Beginning September 1, current Yale students, faculty, and staff no longer need to make appointments to conduct research at Beinecke Library. Placing requests for materials through Orbis or Archives at Yale in advance of your visit remains highly encouraged. Patrons must have their Yale ID for entry.
 

Researchers outside Yale University

Current circumstances do not allow the Beinecke Library to welcome non-Yale researchers to the reading room at this time. We invite you to access materials through the Beinecke Library’s Digital Collections as well as by requesting reproductions.
 

Public Visitors

The exhibition hall remains closed until further notice and current circumstances do not allow the Beinecke Library to welcome public visitors at this time. We invite you to explore the Beinecke Library’s Digital CollectionsDigital ExhibitionsYouTube channel, and other resources on the library website. We look forward to the time in the future when the library will be able to welcome the public again.
