Anyone with an enquiry about Special Collections items can engage the help of our expert curators who are returning to work in the University Library building as part of a carefully controlled plan to re-launch physical library services in line with University coronavirus safety protocols.  

They will discuss your questions over the phone or via a video call, and may be able to check material on your behalf in order to answer specific questions. An overhead visualiser is available so that you can examine material online with the help of staff onsite. They may also be able to supply digital images. 

This service is available to all.
