Visiting the Library
Visitors with a genuine research interest or enquiry are welcome to visit the library to carry out their own research.
We want to share our collections as widely as possible but we also need to be mindful of security and the conservation needs of the books and documents: in addition our resource to staff the library are limited. Therefore access to study any specific book(s) should be arranged in advance with the library and archive staff - a letter of introduction or a reference may be required.
If you don't wish to study a particular book but have a general interest in the library then you are very welcome to attend our regular events focusing on the collections: these include free talks, occasional library open days and other special events. You can also book a place on our monthly specialist library tours follows by a cream tea.
