Information for Researchers
Researchers wishing to use the resources of the Pepys Library must contact the library in advance, outlining their academic and research credentials and their need to consult specific items in our historic collections.
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. Due to COVID-19 restrictions we are only able to provide appointments on Mondays and Thursdays.
Appointment dates will be kept under review in consideration of the current guidance. There are additional social distancing and hygiene procedures for research appointments.
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.
