  • In line with the UK Archive Sector we have adopted The National Archives’ Coronavirus Visitor CharterBefore your visit we ask that you read and commit to the charter in relation to your visit with us. All of these measures have been introduced to ensure the safety of valued researchers like you, and our staff. We thank you in advance for complying with them.

  • Please only come to the Philip Robinson Library once you have received a confirmation email confirming your specified date and time.

  • When you arrive at the Philip Robinson Library, a member of staff will greet you and take you down to the Reading Room on Level 1, or telephone: +44 (0) 191 208 7712 as soon as possible. If you are late to your slot we may not be able to accommodate your visit. 

  • Do not come to the library if you or anyone you have been in contact with has been experiencing symptoms of COVID-19. We will be happy to arrange a later visit for you. 

  • Please note, Special Collection items can only be read in the reading room and cannot be taken to other parts of the library. At present, most of the Philip Robinson Library is closed to general access, and so movement around the building is heavily restricted. You will therefore be asked to remain in the reading room for the duration of your slot where possible.

  • You will be asked to leave your coat and bags in one of our lockers.

  • You will also be asked to read through and follow our Document and Book Handling Guidelines to ensure the continued care and preservation of these special resources.

  • There will always be a member of staff on duty to help you with any queries you may have.
