On-site Resources

Scholar Studies

Private scholar studies may be reserved, subject to availability.

Manuscript images

Microfilm and digital images are available for viewing without charge. For questions about HMML’s collections, contact the appropriate curator.


Visiting scholars will have access to a microfilm reader to view microfilm and/or a computer to view uncataloged collections not yet available in HMML Reading Room.

The microfilm readers at HMML are ScanPro 2500 digital microfilm readers. These tools use a high-resolution camera to send images to a computer, where the operator can adjust brightness, contrast, and magnification.

Reference resources

Access is provided to HMML’s reference collection, the adjacent Alcuin Library collection, and electronic databases.
