Special Collections is making changes to our policy on groups visiting our department, effective immediately.
Generally, there are two situations where groups visit us, and we’d like to clarify our rules to ensure that visitors have a pleasant experience, and to adhere to best practices in the continued preservation of our rare books and manuscripts.
For groups of people visiting the department as part of a tour or demonstration of what The University of Tulsa Special Collections has in our holdings, no more than 35 people will be admitted to the Satin Reading Room.
For groups of people visiting the department to handle our collections as part of primary research or course instruction, the following rules apply:
- No more than 18 people will be admitted to the Satin Reading Room.
- Only 3 people may sit at a single table at a time.
- Only one box from a collection will be placed upon a table at a time.
- There are additional rules for the Satin Reading Room listed on our Guidelines sheet, available in the lobby.
Please let us know if you would like to bring a class or group to our department. Special Collections is open to the public Monday-Friday, 8am – 4:30pm.
