Account Guide for SCRC: Doing Research
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.
Anyone wishing to order digital scans, view SCRC materials, visit the Breckinridge Research Room for in-person use of materials, or use the Breckinridge Digital Studio must first create an SCRC Research Account.
Use your Research Account to request retrieval of SCRC materials so they are ready and waiting for you when you arrive for your appointment. Since most of our collections are stored off-site, we ask that you request materials a minimum of 48 business hours in advance to ensure timely retrieval.
You may come across language in UK Libraries Special Collections Research Center collections and online resources that you find harmful or offensive. SCRC collects materials from different cultures and time periods to preserve and make available the historical record. These materials document the time period when they were created and the view of their creator. As a result, some may demonstrate racist and offensive views that do not reflect the values of UK Libraries.
If you find description with problematic language that you think SCRC should review, please contact us at SCRC@uky.edu.
