Studying at archives

We offer two areas for customers to study material:

Archives searchroom

You can request up to eight documents from the archives per session. We need a minimum of three working days' notice to retrieve documents for your visit.

To protect our precious documents, we do not allow pens, food or drinks in the archives searchroom. This includes water bottles.

Local history library

This contains maps, text books and other documents detailing local history. Let us know what you would like to use during your visit, for example a microfilm reader and reference books.

Computers are available for you to use and you may find it useful to bring a USB stick

You can use a camera in both our study areas, you will need to buy a permit.
