If you are looking for information about the Columbia University Radio Club (CURC) and the radio station WKCR, here are the most popular sources available online.
Archival collections are non-circulating and can only be viewed in the Rare Book & Manuscript Library's reading room (RBML). In order to use the University Archives collections at the RBML, you will be required to register your own Special Collections Research Account before your visit and to validate the account in person with government-issued photo identification or Columbia ID card. Once you have created your Special Collections Research Account, you will be able to request materials directly from the finding aid: click the check box located on the right for the box(es) you need, and then scroll back to the top of the container list document and click “Submit Request” button in the red-rimmed box at top. This should lead you directly to your Special Collections Research Account to complete the request form.
For more information on how to access our collections, check out our Research & Access website. If you have any questions about how to find materials or how to access materials, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
