Reading Room Access

We have a dedicated Reading Room available to researchers with power points available for laptops and a computer station that can be used to access our website, the online collections and internet.The Reading Room also contains our reference library, containing published books and material relating to Falkland Islands history or related subject matter, which is free to browse.

We encourage Reading Room researchers to book their visit and order documents in advance.

This allows us to ensure that best use of your time with us can be made and that there will be space and resources available to you.  It also allows us to collate all the relevant records for your research and to advise if we will be closed or unavailable to facilitate your visit on a given day (for example due to any local public holidays).

All researchers are welcome to contact us prior to booking to check what records are available on their subject of research.

All researchers are also required to complete a researcher application form on the day of their appointment and to adhere to the Reading Room Regulations.
