Rod Serling Archives

Request Access

The collection serves the Ithaca College Campus Community as well as journalists, filmmakers, researchers, and enthusiasts of Rod Serling.    Open the door to your imagination by visiting the Rod Serling Collection at Ithaca College Library! 

To request access to the collection, fill out the Serling Archives Service Request form. State whether you just would like to see the space and items in the display case or need materials pulled for research. Some requests would need to be sent to the Rod Serling Estate or CBS for approval, see below.

Requesting Permission for Restricted Materials

From the Roy H. Park School of Communications website:

  • No reproductions of materials in the Serling Archives are permitted without the specific written permission of the donor.
  • Publication of manuscript material requires the written permission of the donor. Unpublished and unproduced materials are closed for general research.
  • Special permission must be obtained from the donor in order to research parts of this collection.
  • Production and distribution rights to the Twilight Zone episodes are managed by CBS.
