Archives staff are working on-site to answer reference questions and will continue to serve the community within and beyond Pratt Institute virtually and in person. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, researchers who are not affiliated with Pratt, including alumni, must be pre-approved by the Department of Public Safety before coming to campus. As such, we ask that any on-site appointment requests for non-Pratt researchers, as well as the documentation outlined below, be submitted at least one week in advance. Pratt students, faculty, and staff may request appointments one business day in advance.
As per Institute policy, visitors are welcome on campus after submitting Pratt Institute’s COVID-19 Acknowledgement for Visitors/Guests/Alumni/
