Requesting items for research
How to request items
When you find an item you would like to consult, make a note of the item number, title and author or editor (if appropriate). You will then need to fill in an Item Request Form for each item that you require on arrival. Copies of these forms are held in the Reading Room and at the Old Library issue desk.
Make sure that you fill in all the necessary parts of the form – the only box that may be left blank is the ‘Date of Publication’ box. If you are not a member of the University, write ‘external’ in the box marked ‘card no.’ Be sure that you have noted the item number correctly in the ‘classmark’ box on the form (this information is essential for the staff to be able to find the items). If the title is long, just the first few words will do, but please write clearly to make it easier for Centre staff to find the items. When you have filled in your forms hand them to the member of staff on duty.
You may e-mail the Reading Room to make requests of items in advance, by clicking here bdc. Make sure when you do this that you provide full details of the item number, the title and the author (where appropriate), as well as your name and the date on which you wish to consult the items.
