For Researchers

The Working Library is intended for use by College members only, but other members of the University may, at the discretion of library staff, consult its collections by prior appointment. Please email for further information.

The Old Library collections are accessible to members of the University and other validated researchers for consultation by prior appointment, and can be accommodated during our staffed hours of Mondays to Fridays, 9.00 to 17.00. Please contact the College Librarian, John Wagstaff (, phone 01223 334950) for further details.

Applications should be made at least one week prior to the date of the proposed visit, and should provide details of the materials to which access is sought.
