Research Consulting

  • Library Research Fee:
    Due to the large number of reference requests received by our Research Library, it has become necessary for us to charge a reference fee. The reference fee is $35.00 per hour for non-members and $25.00 per hour for members with the first hour being prepaid. This charge is for staff time involved in attempting to answer your questions through sources in our library and allows up to 10 photocopies. We cannot, of course, guarantee results to your inquiry, but at the very least we try and suggest other sources for you to try. To make a reference request, please download, print, and complete the Library Research Consulting Fee form (PDF file, 9 kB), and send it with a description of your research request.
  • Immigration and Naturalization Research in New York State: The Research Library has limited resources in this area. Learn about our holdings and other resources.
  • Adoption Research: The Research Library does not have adoption research information in our collection. Learn about other resources.
