Please arrive at your specific appointment time and wait to be called into the reception.
For your safety, we will have social distancing and hygiene measures in place. However, if you are able to, you will be required to wear your own face covering during your visit.
You will be assigned a locker for your coat and bags, and you must wash your hands before consulting the material. We will have hand gel available but the residue can cause damage to documents so we advise washing your hands with soap and water before handling documents.
You'll also need to bring your own pencils and paper to take notes as these cannot be provided. Pens are not permitted.
Once in the search room you will be assigned a specific seat - use only the seat assigned to you.
Where possible, we insist that everything is ordered in advance. This includes documents, maps as well as all books from our reference section. Please note that not all items will be available.
Browsing of local studies material, computer and microfilm use will not be permitted in the search room.
A staff member will be present in the search room at all times to answer any queries you have. However, due to limited staff capacity and social distancing measures, we will not be able to provide extensive one to one assistance.
