UVA-affiliated Proxy Researchers for Hire

This list of researchers is offered as a service to those of our patrons who need research work beyond the limitations of our library. Each person on the list is a UVA affiliate who is basically familiar with our collections and their use. The Small Special Collections Library cannot assume responsibility for their work. All arrangements for research to be performed, fees paid, and method and timing of payment are strictly private between the patron and the researcher.
