Guidelines for Access

Articles, Books, & More!

Mount students, faculty, alumnae/i, staff and qualified researchers are invited to explore the Mount Saint Mary’s University Archives. Because they consist of irreplaceable, one-of-a-kind materials, archives visitors must observe the access policy.

Access Policy

  • Access to certain materials is restricted due to matters of confidentiality and privacy.

  • The Archivist will assist patrons in proper handling of fragile materials.
  • Only pencils may be used for taking notes in the Archives.
  • Study groups are limited to three students at a time.
  • The Archivist will assist patrons and students in how to cite the material.
