Please note: if your enquiry incurs a charge, we will contact you prior to research
Enquiries can be sent to the Research Collections Team via telephone, e-mail, post and fax.
Manuscript enquiries - For specific Manuscript Collections enquiries please look at the Manuscript Collection page.
Important note - Enquiries are dealt with on a strict order of receipt.
Our standard response time is 3 - 4 working weeks, but this is subject to staff availability. We are not able to respond immediately to e-mail enquiries, and are not able to send acknowledgements of receipt due to the high volume of enquiries we receive. For all enquiries, please ensure you give your postal address.
