Reading Room open to all users by appointment

From 1 March 2021, the Reading Room will be open to all users to access Archives and Special Collections materials. Please make requests for materials through the Aeon system. The Reading Room will be open for two-hour appointments at 11am and 2pm on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.

Reading Room staff will be in touch with readers to advise them on when their materials will be available for use and how to make an appointment. University of Melbourne users can also continue to request digital resources.

You will only be able to view the material requested for the duration booked in the Reading Room. You may make multiple bookings, and your materials will be kept for you, but please note that in times of high demand, the number of slots requested by one user may be restricted.
