We have a dedicated reading room available to researchers with power points available for laptops. Due to staffing constraints we do request that all researchers book well 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 advise if we will be closed due to any local public holidays or other reasons during your visit.

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