Special Collections Viewing Request

All the volumes in our special collections are available to view by anyone with an identified research need. Please note that because of the fragility of many of these items, access is by prior appointment only and appointments are subject to the following conditions:

  • All books are reference only, and cannot be borrowed
  • All work must be done in pencil
  • Photocopying is not allowed, though photography is generally permitted

Once you have been offered an appointment please confirm that you’re able to attend by responding directly to the email, as Special Collection items need to be retrieved from a remote store.

Apply using the form below.
