Hostos students, faculty, and staff are able to access and use the archives free of cost. The archives staff is available for assistance only.  Those who are conducting extensive research should plan on scheduling an appointment, or if possible several appointments, for as long as necessary.  In some cases, archives staff will be able to fullfill requests for frequently accessed materials without the researchers presence.  In all other cases, it is expected that the researcher take the time necessary to find and locate materials within the various collections.
