The reading room is home!
We are pleased to announce that we will be re-opening the reading room in its usual space from Tuesday 23rd November 2021.
This means that we will have capacity for up to ten researchers a day, with full access to the books, journals and pamphlets in the open access library.
Opening times will remain the same: Tuesday-Friday, 9.30-12.30 and 13.30-16.00 (we will close for an hour at lunch).
Bookings and requests for material must still be made in advance. Find out how to do so on our reading room page. We recommend visiting this page to familiarise yourself with the most up-to-date procedures to avoid disappointment.
We will have the windows open to provide ventilation (bring extra layers on cold days) and we ask that researchers please continue to wear face coverings throughout their visits.
Thank you for your patience over the last couple of months while essential building work took place. We know that this has caused inconvenience to many of our researchers.
