Applications to use the Collection should be made in writing or by email to the Special Collections Librarian in the first instance. Enough information must be provided to identify clearly the credentials of the applicant and the use to which the papers will be put, and each application will be individually considered on its merit.

Successful applicants will be advised of suitable times and dates for using the Collection. Access is usually available Monday to Friday, 10.00am to 1.00pm and 2.00pm to 4.00pm, or by appointment.

Applicants must provide adequate identification and sign for the files they use. A record will be kept of all files used by each applicant, and a check may be made of each file before and after use.

Copying will be allowed in accordance with the provisions of the Copyright Act 1968 as amended. One copy of each item may be made for research and study. The applicant is responsible for seeking the approval of the copyright owner if use is to be made of the papers in any publication or if they wish to make additional copies.
