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.
There are two collections a day (morning and afternoon, Monday to Friday) so your item will normally be ready for you by the next working day at the latest. However if you are not a member of the University and you are arranging travel please allow two working days in case the item is already in use or otherwise inaccessible.
