Today, the Albert & Shirley Small Special Collections Library is launching a new online request and material circulation system.
The Special Collections Request System is an automated request and workflow management software specifically designed for special collections libraries and archives.
This new system will improve how researchers register and request materials held by the Small Special Collections Library by…
- Allowing Special Collections users to register as researchers: This one-time registration process is easy and includes the creation of your online account. With this account, you will be able to request materials from the Library’s online catalog, VIRGO and archival materials from Archives at UVA for use in our reading room. You will also be able to track the status of your requests. UVA students, faculty, staff, and current community users will be required to register in this new system. Register now.
- Empowering researchers to request materials before visiting: Researchers will now be able to request collection materials before arriving at the Library. Please note that researchers are limited to 10 active item requests at one time. Additional requests may be made once the initial 10 items have been viewed. Requests can be made from your online account by using the links under the New Requests section of your dashboard.
- Please note that visitors must bring a valid photo ID: ALL researchers will be asked to present a valid photo ID once to confirm registration. UVA students, faculty, and staff should present their UVA ID card to complete registration.
