Information for Researchers

Please schedule on-site research with an Archivist well in advance of your visit. Due to staff responsibilities and staff availability, we often experience unexpected closures during Archives regular business hours.

Please be aware that research queries sent via email will be responded to as soon as possible but in some cases please expect a week or so for a response from an Archivist.
