Archives and Special Collections
From Autumn 2020, we are able to provide research access to Archives and Special Collections at Palace Green Library by appointment only.
We are open on a small scale, with reduced capacity and opening hours, which will help us to ensure that Palace Green Library is a safe space for all, and that our services can be delivered safely. Changing guidelines mean that access may be limited to University members; please check when making bookings.
The search room opening hours will be 10am to 4pm Monday to Friday. Opening hours over lunchtime will vary.
There is more information for visitors, including guidance about additional rules and procedures in place during the current situation, and information on how to request an appointment.
For any other enquiries about our collections please contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
