You are welcome to ask Natalia and Elise any research questions you have. We may refer you to subject experts or we may identify an archivist. Our librarians and archivists have subject expertise and have researched, and helped scholars research, within the topics and fields you are studying.

Special note: What is an accession record? An accession record is:
"A form or log that summarizes standard information about the process of transferring materials to a repository. - 2. A case file containing all materials associated with the legal and physical transfer of records or other materials to a repository."
Typically, accession records are not available online so you need to ask collection experts.
An accession record is typically created by the repository to capture in one place information that is often scattered in many different documents. The form is sometimes referred to as an accessions register. - An accession record might include the deed of gift, a purchase agreement or receipt, or other proof of the transfer of ownership. It often includes supporting documentation, such as preliminary correspondence or information on rights and restrictions."
