Requests to carry out research on material from our collections are welcome from all and readers are admitted free of charge. It is not necessary to be affiliated with an institution to do research in Marsh’s Library but readers must outline a research purpose and indicate what material they wish to see, having consulted our catalogue in advance. Readers will be asked for photographic identification and must read and sign our Regulations for consulting manuscripts and rare books.

Numbers in the reading room are limited to maintain the safety of readers and staff. Please contact the Library for an appointment at least three days in advance:

We are happy to answer queries submitted to the same address.

All items in the library are listed on our online catalogue.

Please see here for further information.
