For Researchers

Our community’s health and well-being is our highest priority. The Clark Library and grounds are expected to remain closed through Summer 2021. This date may be subject to change. We will update this page when we have more information about reopening. In the meantime, Clark staff will continue to be available via email. Please feel free to contact us at For our staff directory, please go to


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.
