Many of the documents in the Barragán Archives are extremely fragile, making it necessary to allow only limited physical access. The archival holdings are in process of being digitized, with the aim of producing a usable database while preserving the original materials for future generations.
Under exceptional conditions, physical access to the original documents can be granted to scholars pursuing specialized research, after submission of a written request detailing their field of study and specific topics of interest. As the consultation is scheduled by appointment and requires personal assistance, the dates and conditions of access depend on the availability of staff. Please note that the Barragan Foundation cannot provide reproductions of archival materials for the work of students or junior researchers. For additional information on the availability and use of selected archival reproductions, please see the FAQ, Media Kit and Copyright sections.
