Research Assistance

To better serve our patrons on campus, the Oberlin College Archives asks you fill out the form below when making initial contact with us. The research assistance form, which helps to standardize our incoming email, contains a number of fields—i.e., first and last names, email and campus addresses, and research topic. In addition, we would appreciate any additional information you could provide in the optional fields. This will inform us of your class assignment, the nature of your research project, and sometimes your organizational affiliation.
