Ransom Center offers remote research services
Thursday, April 9, 2020 by Tai Moses
Yes, oh studious one, the libraries are all closed, but if you are engaged in critical research, there’s still hope. The Harry Ransom Center – UT’s illustrious humanities research facility – is also closed to the public, but its staffers are providing some modified research and reference services remotely through at least May 1. As the center put it in a message on its website, “Without access to collections, many reference and research queries, duplication orders and other public services are necessarily on hold. However, librarians, curator, and research and instructional support staff continue to be available to provide consultations via email, phone, or Zoom.” The Ransom Center has waived all fees during the closure. “Staff may assist with identifying and accessing online resources, and enabling provision and support in use of digital materials when available, for ongoing teaching and research.” Find helpful email addresses and information about which services the center is offering here.
