  • For researchers contacting us via phone or email, our staff can provide up to 30 minutes of research work on their behalf. 
  • All queries are answered in the order in which they were received, and response may take up to two weeks depending on the request. 
  • For requests that will take more than 30 minutes of research, Special Collections charges $40 per hour, pending staff availability.
  • Please email for assistance with your reference query.

Researchers for Hire

Alternatively, if you are interested in hiring a UNLV History graduate student to assist with extensive research requests, Special Collections can provide you with a contact name and email for the UNLV History Department office. Any arrangement with them is a private transaction and the UNLV Libraries assumes no responsibility for the quality of work performed or the fees charged.
