As usual with any University Special Collection, write or call and ask
about the collection and seeing it in person. (It may be unavailable while
being catalogued for instance.) Special collections as a general rule
policies and special hours and many restrictions.
Some libraries will let you in and show you everything. Others like the
Folger Shakespeare Library make you jump through hoops and then jump
even higher. You make an appointment there weeks or months in advance
all the reasons why only that collection will do. having been ok'ed,
imagine standing before the desk at Folger while they call your academic
and have your references describe you so they know that you are who you
say you are.
This is also after they had already asked for and were holding your
passport and driver's license.
And in order to answer the next question, yes, I passed and was allowed
to use the collection.
