How can I access Special Collections?

King's students and staff
King’s students and staff must present their university identification card and sign the visitors’ book upon arrival.

Finding material and using the Library catalogue
You are welcome to visit without an appointment and we are happy to help with your enquiry.
However, to help you make the most of your visit - and this particularly applies to visitors from outside King's - we recommend that you Contact Us to make an appointment at least one working day in advance, either by telephone, email, or in writing.
By consulting the Special Collections subset of the library catalogue before your visit and giving us full details of the material you would like to see, you can help us to ensure that we have items ready for you on arrival.
