Due to limited staffing, the museum archive is open to students, faculty, staff, and the public by appointment only. Individuals looking to conduct research should contact the museum to make an appointment at least five business days in advance. Prior notice is required to ensure that the desired materials can be retrieved and made available upon arrival. Artifacts and materials within the museum and its archive are non-circulating. As a result, supervised access is required when handling collections for research purposes. 


Usage of materials from the museum are subject to copyright law and as such are made available strictly for the purpose of personal use, scholarship, or research. Any desire to utilize these items beyond this scope requires the user to obtain permission not only from UMCC but also from the rights holder as well.


Artifacts, images, or information obtained from the UMCC requires the user to provide proper credit through citation. Use the following example to provide citation for UMCC archive materials.
