How to book an appointment

UCL Special Collections has now re-opened all three of our reading rooms, with reduced hours. Many of our staff are still largely working from home but we will endeavour to answer your emails as usual. Where possible, we will be working to support your research and teaching online, and making our schools and outreach programme available virtually.

For further information about sources available online, please see our website.
