The Bath & West Library collection is held within the University Library's archive store and not directly accessible by Library users. Users can request items from the collection by searching the Library catalogue and/or the list of journals held in the collection in .pdf format.

Items can then be read in the University Archivist's room. Access to the Library is possible within office hours (Monday to Friday, 09:00 to 17:00 hrs). We will do our best to host requested dates, however appointments for visits are subject to the availability of the Archivist's room, Archivist, and the Honorary Librarian.

It is helpful if requests for resources are made at least 24 hours before your visit, although you can request additional items whilst on campus there may be a delay in retrieving them from the archive store.

If you have any questions please contact the Honorary Librarian. Enquiries can be made by phone or e-mail and limited factual questions may be answered without a visit, however we do not have the resources to do research on your behalf.
