For a step by step guide on how to request Special Collections items, please visit our dedicated web page. You will be notified by email when the items are ready for consultation. Further requests can also be made while you are with us via the Reading Room supervisor if you need assistance.
Special Collections items are retrieved by staff twice each day (Monday - Friday only). Requests made between 2.00pm and 9.00am will normally be satisfied by 10.00am. Requests made after 9.00am and before 2.00pm will normally be satisfied by 3.00pm.
