There are regular opportunities look around the library; we hold a guided tour every Wednesday at 2.30pm. The tours cost £2 per person and last about 1 hour. To be guaranteed a place it is best to book in advance but please do contact the library for further details. Although we cannot show people round on an individual basis you can always pop up to the first floor if you are passing and interested in joining or want to find out about our library tours.
Research visits are by appointment and the visitor needs to bring ID and to fill in a form. We cannot allow people free access to our collections without this process being completed. Students should have confirmation of their need to use the material from their tutor at university/college.
Subject to the above we offer a single visit to view specific items by appointment as part of our charitable status. For more than one visit, or for researchers requiring ongoing assistance then temporary membership is available at £30 per quarter and subject to the usual rules.
Staff will be able to advise which approach is most appropriate.
