MCRD Museum Reference Center

The MCRD Museum Reference Center welcomes all researchers.  There is no charge to use the collections.  Due to limited staffing, reference assistance, rather than in-depth research is provided to patrons who call, email, visit in person, or mail a written inquiry. If you would like to conduct research at the Reference Center, This email address is being protected from spambots.

Researchers are required to comply with the MCRD Museum Reference Center Guidelines. All visitors are also required to comply with the museum animal policy.

Please let the Historian know the nature of your research and which collections you plan on using.   The more information you can provide, the better service the Historian can provide you.  Researchers may use the copier to photocopy printed materials.  Researchers desiring copies of photographs must provide their own CD's, DVD's, or USB devices, and should come prepared to do their own scanning. 

A scanner is also available, scanning images up to 8.5" x 11" in size, and up to 600 dpi.  If a patron plans on using the museum scanner, they must inform the Historian when they make their appointment so that the scanner can be reserved for their use.  Instructions on how to use the scanner will be provided.
