Hi Natalie,

Could you say more about why compound or hyphenated surnames would require
special treatment?  Can't they be entered as is?

I may not have understood your question.

All the best,

The Special Collections reading room is closed. As of March 18th, all
Special Collections staff will be working remotely. Smith course support is
our primary responsibility at this time.

Minimal reference services will be managed remotely by staff. Reference
inquiries that require access to physical materials will be held in order
of when they were received and responded to once the campus is reopened.
Expect a four to six week delay, minimum. There is a moratorium on
digitization services.
