Join an archives tour
Members can join us for a free tour of the archives to discover the potential that the Manuscript and Image Collection has for research.
Find out what we hold, view some of the highlights of the collection and get tips on effective search techniques for the catalogue.
If you like, you can stay on to do some research, but it is best if you pre-order the research material so that our volunteers can have it ready for you.
How to book
Tours are generally held from 9am to 10am on a Thursday or Saturday. They are advertised in our events calendar, so check the calendar for the next available tour. Bookings are essential.
Family history groups can make a group booking for a day tour of both the library and archives collections. These group bookings are available to members and non-members, and a fee is involved. Contact the Archives Officer for details and bookings.
