The Maps Reading Room is open four days a week:
Monday to Thursday: 10.00-13.00 and 14.00-17.00, by appointment only.
We reply to telephone and email enquiries between 09.30 and 17.00 Monday to Friday.
If you know which maps you wish to consult during your visit, you can request these in advance using our map request form. Alternatively, staff can advise you on relevant maps for your research in the Maps Reading Room.
On 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.
