Guide to resources in Archives and Special Collections at the University of Strathclyde

COVID-19 update

COVID-19 update, Access to Archives and Special Collections 6 July 2020

Our reading room remains closed to the public.

We are currently working on a plan to re-open our services including answering remote enquiries and welcoming visitors. This will happen in a staged way and will work in line with the re-opening of the rest of the University of Strathclyde Library.

To begin with, we will work to ensure it is safe for staff to return to the building to carry out enquiry work and to prepare the reading room, with reference to Scottish Government guidelines, to safely receive researchers.

We aim to start this process in late summer and will keep our website and social media channels up to date with the latest information.
