The Archives can be consulted by making an appointment in advance via the Archivist, Dr. Charlotte Berry (full time) (email@example.com), and the Archives assistant, Ben Taylor (part time, Thurs/Fri) (firstname.lastname@example.org). Visiting hours are 10:00 to 12:30 and 14:00 to 16:30 on Thursdays and Fridays. From 3 Apr 2018, the opening hours will change to Mondays and Tuesdays. Most items will be consulted in the Old Library.
**Please note that the College Archive staff offices and some of the archive collections have been relocated during Dec 2017/Jan 2018. The archive reading room is now located in the Old Library for most readers. Additional collection moves are also planned for April 2018, so archive Reading Room opening hours and the archive enquiry service will be significantly disrupted. Please contact the Archivist for more details: email@example.com **
