For Researchers

The William Andrews Clark Memorial Library’s reading room is currently open only to UCLA students, staff, and faculty with valid Bruincards. Due to both limited hours and seating arrangements a reservation is required.

Reading room availability will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1 to 4pm. Appointments can be made up to one month ahead of your visit and we request at least a two-week lead time in order to page materials.

We have been pivoting from onsite to digital services while prioritizing the health and safety of our employees and complying with campus protocols. At this time, requests have outpaced our resources, so we are currently focusing on addressing the most urgent research needs. We’re working with researchers to assess their needs alongside those of others in our queue as well as our own resources, in order to determine whether and when we will be able to fulfill their requests. Priority will be given to requests from UCLA affiliates, including Center/Clark Fellows, who are working under deadlines. To request remote reference and/or digitization assistance, please email

Registration with our Aeon Special Collections client is required in order to make requests or place reproduction orders. Step-by-step instructions can be found on our Aeon instructions page.
