Closed Collections Schedule

The Beinecke offers the following lists of closures, which are subject to change and updated regularly: material closed for digitization (arranged by call number); material closed for preservation (arranged by call number); material closed for loan (arranged by call number); printed materials closed for processing (arranged by call number); and manuscript material closed for processing (alphabetical). All of these activities may result 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.
