How to Request Materials
for Use in Our Reading Room

Beginning August 1, 2015, the Saul Bellow Papers will be closed to research to allow the collection to be formally processed. Processing is expected to be completed by August 2016, but further updates will be provided as the work continues. If you have any questions about the Bellow Papers please contact us.

All requests for Special Collections materials to be consulted in our reading room are made through our electronic request system. If you would like to order copies, or have a question about our materials, please use our online form.
