Temporary reduced library services

Temporary reduced library services

The Society’s library currently has two staff vacancies; details of these can be found on our website

There will therefore be reduced library services for 3 months until there is a full complement of staff.

Research visits: Research visits by Fellows will continue as usual during the Library’s normal opening times (Monday - Friday 10am - 5pm). Fellows wishing to consult material that needs retrieving by staff (manuscripts, archives, prints and drawings, and printed items on closed access) are asked to order material in advance.

External researcher visits will be limited to no more than 2 researchers per day and will be strictly by appointment only. Our Guidelines for Researchers on our website give information on how to make an appointment.

Image services: Our image services are suspended, and we will not be accepting requests for images and licences from the library and museum collections.
This does not affect the photocopying service.


Other library services to Fellows will operate as normal (book loans and electronic resources service)

Please check our website at /library/ for dates of planned closures.
