Contacts & Reference Assistance
The staff at the APS Library are happy to assist with any inquiry pertaining to our collections or areas of interest and expertise. Due to the specialized nature of the APS collections, staff members may be unable to assist with genealogical inquiries, or with general inquiries of the sort best directed to a local public library.
Inquiries may be addressed by surface mail, by e-mail, or by phone.
E-mail inquires must include
- Complete name,
- Surface address, and
- E-mail address.
Please send your inquiry only to one member of the staff. If necessary, we will forward your request to the appropriate person.
