Research Policy: 

The CMA exists to serve the carriage community from its resources of a world-class library and panel of experts. Our constituents include collectors, museums, libraries, researchers, and the interested public. Our services include research concerning vehicles, carriage manufacturers, driving personalities, and more.  We are happy to help with your research or answer your questions about carriages. After you submit your question, we will contact you within a few days to discuss the details of your research.

Questions requiring less than 15 minutes of research are answered free of charge. If more in-depth research is required, the CMA fee is $25 an hour, or any portion thereof. We will contact you before this research begins. Our photocopy fee is $0.15 per page. Research will be delivered in the appropriate electronic format, or as requested.

Brewster searches are $20 per search (Specifications and Sales sheets).  An image file for each spec and sales record (or a .PDF file, if requested) will be provided for each search, if such record is available.

For every $50 donated to the Library (become a Friend of the Library), we will provide either (a) 2 Brewster searches (Specifications and Sales sheets, if available) or (b) 2 hours of research, without charge. A minimum $50 donation will also allow a 20% discount on one book from our bookstore.
