Dumbarton Oaks-Byzantine Coins collection

Is it possible to view the Byzantine coins collection, in person, at Dumbarton Oaks or is it exclusively available on line for viewing?

I`ve visited the web site and it`s unclear whether or not a visitor can actually view the coins on site.
Maybe some collectors-dealers know the answer to my question!

I know that some books about the collection were published and they are very expensive( maybe not so for advanced collectors..).

Thanks in advance for your reply.

"Dumbarton Oaks welcomes scholars to consult its books, images, and objects, and the public to visit its garden, museum, and music room for lectures and concerts".

http://www.doaks.org/

In keeping with their educational mission, institutional collections are made available for hands-on research by legitimate parties but for obvious reasons there is screening involved and access is often limited to credentialed scholars.

Regards,
Dave
