Account Guide for SCRC: Doing Research: Scheduling an Appointment

Use this guide to learn how to activate your SCRC Research Account, schedule an appointment, request special collections materials for use in the Breckinridge Research Room, and order digital scans of special collections materials.

Planning Your Research Visit

The UK Libraries Special Collections Research Center Research Room is open Monday-Friday, 10am-4:30pm. Appointments are recommended.

Planning your research visit is a two-step process:

  1. Schedule an appointment using the UK Libraries appointment system. Walk-ins are welcome.
    **Effective August 9, 2021** masks will be required inside of all UK Libraries campus locations, regardless of an individual's vaccination status, in accordance with the University of Kentucky's latest health and safety update.
  2. Request SCRC materials using one of the SCRC databases, the UK Libraries catalog, or directly through your SCRC Research Account. Most materials are stored off-site and require a minimum 48 hour advanced notice.
