The Maps Reading Room is open three days a week:
Monday, Tuesday, Thursday: 09.30-17.00.
On Wednesdays and Fridays, when the reading room is closed, maps staff work on digitisation projects and other collection tasks. This will greatly enhance discovery and access to the map collections for the future.
We reply to telephone and email enquiries between 09.30 and 17.00 Monday to Friday.
