Archives reference assistance is available to VTS faculty, staff, students, and the general public. Reference assistance will be provided to patrons in need of research aid, but the archives staff is not able to perform detailed research work for patrons.

For those researchers unable to visit the collections in person, Archives staff can provide up to 30 minutes of research time and a report of findings free of charge. Please allow at least 2 weeks for a response due to the number of reference questions received and other duties associated with the management and operation of the Archives. All reference requests will be answered. Inquiries by mail, email, or FAX are preferred and should be addressed to:
