Folklore and Ethnography Archives
3619 Locust Walk Room 403
The archive is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., but an advance appointment is recommended to ensure that someone will be there to serve materials.
Students may borrow readings from the reserve and article files
for up to one hour for photocopying. To do so:
- Enter the date, time, your name and the title of the item
borrowed in the Archive Sign-Out Sheet.
- Leave your student I.D. with the archivist. If you must do
your copying in the library, leave a drivers license or other
- Once the borrowed item has been returned your I.D. will be
given back to you.
NO OTHER RESOURCES MAY BE TAKEN OUT OF THE ARCHIVE.
Exceptions are granted only to Teaching and Research Assistants
and Lecturers. For rules governing these situations, see Faculty
Faculty members and teaching assistants may borrow any resource
from the Archives to photocopy. Rules regarding the signing-in
and out of materials for students apply to faculty members as
well. Faculty may sign out materials overnight for in-home use.
If you need copies of items in our non-published collection,
ask the archivist for instructions. You may need special permission
if the material is restricted, and in all cases you will be required
to sign a release stating the material is for academic, not commercial
use. When all the requirements of restricted use have been met,
the photocopying can be done.
The Archive Computer and Printer
The computer, printer, and scanner are provided for the use of the archivist and archival assistants. When not in use for archival work, they are available for students, faculty, visiting lecturers, and CFE fellows.
