How do I request and view something from the Archives or Special Collections?

Searching

Each collection has its own catalogue and way of identifying material that you can request.

Visit the searching page for links to each collection website.

Requesting

To place requests, use the Aeon request system.

There is also a request button on the right-hand side of items which are in the library catalogue.

Items can be viewed in the Reading Room by approved researchers, or requested for digital delivery.  For more information see the Ask Archives and Special Collections page.
