Visit us

Members of the university community, researchers from other institutions, and the public in general may access the Transgender Archives at no charge.

  • Before your visit, please take note of our hours and location.
  • Photo ID is required to view requested material.
  • No appointment is needed. Once you arrive, speak to the staff at the desk and they will gladly assist you.
  • Because our materials are rare and one-of-a-kind, we are a "closed archives" (meaning that our staff will happily retrieve the materials for you).
  • We encourage visitors to review our FREE downloadable book that reviews our collections, “Foundations for the Future: The Transgender Archives.”
  • Review our collections, download our finding aids, and keyword search what you're looking for.
  • Only pencil and paper, or laptops, may be used in this area -- pens are not permitted.
  • Gloves may be required while using certain materials.
  • Use of material is normally restricted to our reading room during regular hours.
  • Reproduction by photocopy, scanning, or by any other means, is determined on an item-by-item basis dependent on the material's condition, copyright, and specific restrictions.  Self-serve scanners and photocopiers are available (photocopying costs: 12¢/side for B&W, 40¢/side for colour).
