With the recent easing of the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health restrictions for libraries, The Huntington has begun a phased reopening of its Library reading rooms. As a result, the Library has adopted a new appointment system to effectively manage occupancy and ensure physical distancing. Currently, reading room reservations are limited to staff and to Huntington-sponsored research fellows who received awards in the 2019-2020 and 2020-2021 fellowship years only. We are regularly monitoring health protocols while actively working to make space for more researchers. All virtual services will continue to be offered. Please watch this space regularly for new information and updates regarding access.

Should you submit an application for access, a member of the Reader Services staff will be in contact with you. All applicants must be engaged in research in an area well-supported by the Library's collections.
