We are all responsible for the health and safety of our community and ourselves. Our guidelines below are developed to provide services with care for all. We expect these guidelines may change as government agencies and RISD issue additional directives. All services are contingent upon staffing being available.
By appointment only (no drop-ins).
We are offering in-person and virtual appointments:
For both in-person and virtual appointment up to five items can be pulled per appointment and must be done prior to the appointment. We currently can not offer additional item pulls during appointments.
We are currently offering virtual classes via Zoom and our document camera from the Archives and Special Collections Reading Room.
