Preparation for this week Please bring a notebook and a pencil with you, pens will not be allowed in the reading room and when prints are out, there is little space for laptops, although these are allowed in the study room. You may also use a digital camera, without flash, when conducting research. We encourage you to bring a camera and laptop however for working from the museum. We have one 'course laptop' that will be made available. If you do not have a camera, please arrange to loan one for the week from our 'hatch' on Portland floor 3.
