REFERENCE AND RESEARCH SERVICES
The Archive is a repository for the historical records of Norman Rockwell. Its primary purpose is to document the history of Norman Rockwell and the Norman Rockwell Museum, as an institution, while providing source material for staff, the museum community, scholars, authors, artists, educators, and other interested persons who seek to evaluate the impact of published imagery on the history of art, society, and culture.
Archive staff will provide to the fullest extent possible collection guides, finding aids, and indexes as well as personal assistance to facilitate the research process.
Archive staff can assist the researcher by providing:
—Information about archive holdings
—Instruction and advice in locating and handling material
—Document duplication services
Archive staff will be unable to provide:
—Extensive, specialized or evaluative research
—Monetary appraisal of collections of documents, books or memorabilia
—Critical review of manuscripts or fact-checking
Researchers requesting extensive research and reference service may find it necessary to hire an independent researcher. For extensive projects, research fees may apply.
