Requesting material to consult
Please give us two working days' notice of your visit to enable staff to retrieve the items. Materials requested on a Friday will be available by the following Monday afternoon. We will contact you to confirm the time of your appointment. You can request material online.
Special Collections & Archives material can only be accessed in our reading room and is not available for borrowing.
Group teaching facilities
Seminars for groups of up to 15 people can be arranged, and material from our collections can be made available to support them. Seminars will be held in our seminar room next door to the Reading Room whereever possible in order to minimise disruption to the Reading Room service. Please give as much notice as possible to ensure the room is available, and provide details of the material required.
Take a look at our Teaching Support pages for more information.
