To make an appointment visit the Stanford library homepage and click on "my account," log in with your SUNet ID, under schedule appointments there is a drop down titled "enter for research," click on the drop down and select "Archive of Recorded Sound." Currently we are accepting 4 appointments a week with a capacity of 1 researcher at a time; Wednesday 10-12, 1-3 and Friday 10-12, 1-3. Please review the entry requirements to confirm that you are eligible to visit and be aware that researchers are required to show their completed health check. 

To aid in planning we have an online guide to archival sound recordings to help you get started, in addition, most archival collections require several days to prepare for access so please plan accordingly in planning you visit, a great first step is emailing our staff. Please also be aware that the request and pick up service for circulating materials is still active and materials can be picked up at Green library and select branches (it is not possible to page to the Music Library or the Archive of Recorded Sound at the time of posting).
