We are currently working to make catalogues of our collections available online for searching. Some of our collections have electronic lists and catalogues not yet online, so do please contact us if you can't see what you are looking for.

The Reference Library collection is currently being catalogued; more records are being added each week. This is a work in progress and expected to take 12 months.

We allow photography of materials (without flash) for a £5 charge per visit; researchers will need to make sure their copying is within copyright law. We can also make photocopies of certain materials, within the limits of copyright law and conservation of archive materials.
