Collection Research Advisory
Harvard faculty, students, and museum professionals are highly encouraged to fill-in the online inquiry form provided on our website. The CHSI’s Curator or Director of Administration will get back to you promptly. It is also recommended to first take a look at our online database, Waywiser, before requesting information about specific instruments. Arrangements to study the instruments on site are possible and made on a case-by-case basis.
The CHSI library is open by appointment only. Please contact our Collection Manager for more information on how and when to visit.
While we welcome researchers to CHSI by appointment, beginning an inquiry by consulting Waywiser, our online database, can often save time by determining whether there is material in our collections relevant to your interests. Should more in-depth assistance be required, please use this form to provide us with as much detail as possible. Please be patient as our investigations on your behalf can take up to a week. We will contact you to with our results, and schedule a visit, if need be.
