The express library is a self-service library located on the ground floor of the Archives Centre.

Last admission is 10 minutes before closing and last production of archives is 30 minutes before closing.

There's no need to make an appointment but you might like to telephone first to check we have the materials you want.

We don't take advance orders for documents but can usually produce items from the strong rooms without a long delay.
