When you receive confirmation that your materials are ready, you will be able to view them at the Main Branch of the Public Library (100 Larkin Street) in the sixth floor San Francisco History Center.  Check in at the desk when you arrive.  You will be able photograph materials, but you can only take notes using a pencil.  No pens or other writing materials may be used while viewing archival documents.
