Information for Researchers
Due to coronavirus (COVID-19) restrictions, the Old Library is closed to all visitors, researchers and non-resident Members. Research enquiries are welcomed via email, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Researchers wishing to use the resources of the Old Library must contact us in advance, outlining their academic and research credentials and their need to consult specific items in our historic collections. Researchers of Old Library material are usually accommodated in the Pepys Library.
In usual circumstances, arrangements are made for readers to work from 10-1pm and 2-5pm, Monday-Friday, on dates when the Pepys Library is open.
The guidelines for researchers, which are necessary to consult prior to making an appointment, can be downloaded below.
