The collections of the Ohio History Connection exist for the benefit of present and future generations. Therefore, the public shall be granted reasonable access, by appointment, to exhibited or stored collections, on a non-discriminatory basis for the purposes of research and other educational uses. These research procedures are designed to provide access to the collections, to coordinate research with other collections activities, to provide for an outcome for the research, and to safeguard the collections.
