Failure to comply with any of these archives policies may result in a loss of access to any archives facilities and materials and/or involvement of the Liberty University Police Department.
The archives is a closed stack repository. Any unrestricted materials that a researcher wishes to use must be requested and will be brought to the researcher by archives staff. Researchers who plan to make heavy use of the archives collection should schedule an appointment with the Archivist to discuss their project and research needs. Archives materials do not circulate and are not to be removed from the archives premises except for duplication by archives staff.
The Liberty University Archives is committed to making research materials available to users on equal terms of access. Equal access does not mean that all materials are open to research use. It is the responsibility of the archives to balance the researcher’s need for access with the needs for confidentiality of persons and institutions whose activities are reflected in the material. Consequently, the use of some materials in the archives, especially those of recent date, is subject to restrictions.
This policy is subject to change at any time. See the full Liberty University Archive Policy.
