The Breckinridge Research Room is the place to go for physical access to rare books, archival collections, and oral histories. It is not required to make an appointment prior to your visit but many collections are stored off-site. Advanced notice will ensure that the materials you want are here for your visit. The Research Room staff are happy to place collections on reserve in advance of your visit. Contact us at SCLREF@LSV.UKY.EDU or (859) 257-8611.
If you are unable to do your research on-site, SCRC staff can provide a list of independent researcher candidates. This list is not an endorsement of the quality of the researchers' work, and SCRC is not responsible for any arrangement made with independent researchers. Such arrangements, including the character, extent, and cost of the work, are purely private, contractual matters between the independent researcher and you. It also is up to you to determine whether or not the researcher's experience and qualifications meet your needs. Comments or complaints received by SCRC regarding any individual independent researcher will be forwarded to that researcher for resolution.
