Information for Researchers
Researchers wishing to use the resources of the Pepys Library must contact us in advance, outlining their academic and research credentials and their need to consult specific items in our historic collections. Booking well in advance is recommended.
Researchers are able to book appointments 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.
Information and online resources relating to the Pepys Library can be found on the Catalogues and Research Tools page.
Please note that there will be refurbishment to the Pepys building taking place from autumn 2024, during which time the Pepys Library will initially be closed to researchers for a number of weeks before operating a limited service under alternative arrangements.
