Security measures for all users of our searchrooms

On arrival in the Archive Centre ALL bags, briefcases, folders, files, document wallets etc. should be placed in the lockers provided.  Coats and outdoor jackets also need to be left outside the searchroom on the coat hooks provided. Loose papers, notebooks and pencils may be taken into the searchroom.

These security measures will help us to prevent losses from our collections and safeguard irreplaceable material for the use of future generations of historians and researchers.   We appreciate your understanding and co-operation.
