Visiting the Library


We are open on Wednesday and Thursday

The Library is open to Fellows, Friends and employees of Corporate Patron companies on Wednesday and Thursday, from 10am-5pm. For now we require you to let us know you are coming in advance. To book, please email with your preferred date.

The Archivist is also available to welcome researchers who wish to consult the archive collections, including non-members.

In order to keep our Library users and staff safe you will find some aspects of your visit a little different to normal. 

All visitors and staff should observe COVID-19 guidelines by:

  • Wearing a face-covering (unless you are exempt)
  • Cleaning hands / sanitising on arrival and regularly during their time in the building
  • Maintaining social distancing

Using the Library:

  • A desk will be reserved for each user
  • If you know what material you would like to consult we will get it ready for you in advance
  • The photocopier/scanner/printer will be disinfected after each use
  • Payment for photocopying and other charged services will be taken by card only
  • We encourage you to bring bottled water with you

Browsing the Library's shelves:

  • When browsing the shelves and moving around the Library please be aware of other users and maintain social distancing at all times

These procedures and our opening hours will be regularly reviewed depending on guidance regarding COVID-19, as well as staff availability. We appreciate your patience and support at this time.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Library soon!
