Registration and borrowing

To use our reference library on-site, simply come visit during our opening hours. Once you have filled in our registration form, you can immediately begin your research on our holdings using your borrowing ticket. If the research you would like to undertake is likely to be extensive, please contact us in advance so that we can prepare the media you need for you before you arrive. If you are unable to visit us personally, it is well worth exploring the potential of our interlibrary loan, scanning and copying services.
