TEMPORARY SUSPENSION OF THE RESEARCH SERVICE 1 MAY-31 DECEMBER 2021

We wish to advise researchers that our remote enquiry service and public reading room will be closed for a period of seven months from 1 May 2021. This is being done to allow our team to focus on clearing a significant backlog of new additions to the collection.

We do appreciate that this may be frustrating, and we apologise for any inconvenience it may cause. However, this project will ultimately help make our collection more accessible for researchers, as thousands of new items will be added to our collection management system, as well as being digitised, which will pave the way for more of our collection to be made available online. Since launching in February 2020, our online photo database has been enormously popular, and we are looking forward to expanding this to other parts of the collection from next year onwards.

Keep following our blogsubscribe to our newsletter, and follow us on Facebook, as our Collections team will be sharing progress reports, and some of the amazing things they work on over the next few months.
