Policies and Procedures

Reference Policy (Including Remote Reference Requests)

Use of Trinity University’s Special Collections and Archives is open to everyone and an appointment is not required unless it is outside of our normal open hours. We encourage all interested parties to visit and use the collection. Materials do not circulate, but can be used in the Special Collections and Archives reading room. Some material may be restricted. We are happy to help with any reference questions. For remote reference requests, staff can spend up to one hour working on your reference request. For remote reference questions that will require more than one hour of research, we recommend that you come in person or hire an independent researcher. Please let us know if you have any questions by contacting us at or 210-999-7355.
