Due to precautions for virus, Special Collections are by appointment only Monday - Friday,   10:00AM - 4:00 PM. Email for more information.

Some of Special Collections can be found in Jones Hall at 6801 Freret Street, across Newcomb Place from Howard-Tilton Memorial Library. 

The Schiro Reading Room, which serves the Louisiana Research Collection and University Archives, has a self-service overhead digital scanner with the option of a cradle (for books) or flat surface (for documents). Scans may either be saved to a USB drive or e-mailed directly from the scanner. Emailing works only with a limited number of small files, so researchers should bring their own USB drive.

The Latin American Library is located on the 4th floor of Howard-Tilton Memorial Library.

Rare Books is located on the 6th floor of Howard-Tilton Memorial Library.
