COVID-19 Update to Researchers
As a precaution against COVID-19, Special Collections & Archives’ reading room is closed. Staff are working primarily remotely and are continuing to support research and instructional needs as much as possible with limited access to physical collections. Please note we are prioritizing requests from Bowdoin faculty, staff and students, but will endeavor to respond to all researchers, although response times may take longer than usual. Please email us at email@example.com to ask us a question.
