We welcome group visits to the Library and Search Room, by prior arrangement. These typically last between one and two hours and consist of talks, a display of archive material and a tour of our archive strongrooms.

We also provide virtual group visits and talks, which can be tailored to an individual group’s interests.

In the past we have had visits from schools, universities, youth groups, local and family history groups, specialist interest groups, civic societies and professional bodies. All are welcome.

Free, but subject to availability. Please contact us to discuss.

One-to-one consultations via Zoom or Microsoft Teams

If you are unable to visit our library and search room in person, book an online one-to-one consultation with a member of staff through Microsoft Teams or Zoom.

During these sessions we are happy to discuss your research with you and recommend sources from our library and archive, and/or to show you the documents and help you select the items /pages you would like copied.

Due to the time available, we will only be able to show you a limited number of documents. They will not be held up or handled in any way that may cause damage.
