We are located in the Institution’s Library at 1 Birdcage Walk, London. When visiting the library for your appointment, please report to Reception who will direct you to us. Once here you will be asked to read our user guidelines and sign in (we ask that unless you are a current Institution member you provide proof of name and address).
We always aim to have the materials requested waiting for you; some items may require us to assist you and there will always be a member of staff available to help you. We will let you have a few items at a time and we will swap items over once you are ready. If using your own camera, your sign-in form also acts as your declaration that these images are for personal research use (this is a UK legal requirement); unfortunately you cannot use a flash or professional equipment such as lighting rigs.
