Q. How do I register for a special collections account?
You will be prompted to create an account after clicking the request button. You may also create an account here: landing page.
First, you will be asked to read and accept Yale’s library user agreement. Researchers with a valid Yale NetID can use Yale’s Central Authentication Service (CAS) to register online and create a special collections account. All other researchers must provide a valid email address to complete registration.
For additional information about registering for an special collections account, including forms of identification you must bring for your first visit, see the Using Special Collections at the Yale University Library registration page.
