In-person research and duplication services are halted, and all other services will be limited and/or delayed. Minimal reference services are available via remote staff, and any requests requiring in-person use of collections will be held in the order received and responded to once the Libraries are open again. You can email us anytime at uwarchiv@library.wisc.edu, but understand the response may be delayed. ⁠
