Please note that initially readers will only be able to book a maximum of two days in any two week period to ensure all those requiring appointments are able to access our reading room. Additionally, to ensure we are able to maintain social distancing only three researchers will be allowed in the reading room on any one day.

Plans for wider reopening and online resources
