Temporary closure of Special Collections and Archives 2017

The Special Collections and Archives are currently closed following a major flooding incident on Saturday 7th January. A relatively small number of items suffered water damage, thanks to our immediate response and successful salvage operation. Even so, the incident has caused major and long term disruption to the service.

All collections have moved to alternative storage and we are unable to offer an enquiry or searchroom service whilst we dedicate the coming months to the care of our collections and reinstatement of the archive stores.

There may be some delay in responding to emails and phone calls.

Updates on progress will be posted in due course.
