Introduction to the library

Ask A Librarian

Do you have a research or collection query? Need help finding information? Ask one of our librarians!

From 19th-century Indian rainfall records to WWI diaries, film composers to the longest word in the English language and more, we can help answer your questions and offer research guidance.

Visit our website for current Ask a Librarian service options.

Librarians are available onsite when the Library is open - see all opening hours.

You can also send us your question anytime. This is great for more complex enquiries; you can add attachments, edit your query or reply to us via email.
