Visiting Researchers

The Stuart A. Rose Manuscript, Archives, and Rare Book Library will not offer fellowships for 2021 due to ongoing travel restrictions at Emory University in order to reduce the spread of Covid-19.

We continue to offer remote services to all researchers through our regular online request process to provide access to our collections. Please continue to stay tuned to this page for information in 2022.
