Research requests are accepted by e-mail, phone, mail and fax.
Most research requests are not charged a fee,
however, for involved time consuming research, where multiple air dates, specific titles, and definitive
detailed broadcast information is solicited, a fee of $35 per hour is charged for such data, using our
in-house extensive television reference library.
Air dates allow staff to quickly confirm if a program exists in our
archive. We are interested in knowing about other similar
collections, large and small.
