Members of the public who wish to conduct their own research are welcome to visit the library and use the resources. The most frequently used items are available on open access, for readers to browse through and select for themselves, but some of the stock is stored ‘behind the scenes’ and is obtainable on request. Staff will help identify appropriate sources and give guidance on using the collection. The material is available for reference use only. We welcome visitors and our friendly staff are happy to assist customers with their enquiries.
