The researcher must accept the responsibility of carefully handling the materials that are provided to them.

Some materials may require wearing white gloves proved by the archives staff.
Archival materials are to be maintained in the order in which they are received by the researcher. If any material is discovered to be out of order, please advise the archives staff. Do not rearrange papers.
The Ferdinand Roebling III Archives will consider requests for limited reproduction of material when such duplication can be done without damage to the material and when duplication does not violate donor agreements or copyrights laws. Entire folders of materials, oral histories, photographs and audiovisual materials in any format will not be copied. The Reproduction Request form must be completed and submitted to the archives staff. Permission to reproduce does not constitute permission to publish.
