Physical access to Special Collections and Archives is now available to QUB staff & students.
The physical service is currently available on an appointment only basis on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Time-slots on those days are 10:00-13:00; 13:00-15:00 & 15:00-17:00.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to book.
The Special Collections & Archives Reading Room is located on Floor 1 of The McClay Library. Please note the Reading Room is set to a temperature of 19.4 °C. This balances fluctuations in environment between the Reading Room and the Store; the cooler temperature and controlled humidity in both areas protects Special Collections stock.
