Visit Special Collections

Special Collections is open to all visitors to The Mitchell and appointments are not always necessary. However, anyone wishing to use material from any of our collections is advised to contact us in advance, particularly if travelling from a distance.

Proof of ID will be required; this should display your name, home address (not university or college) and signature.  A driving licence, electoral registration, utility bill, plus credit/debit card  is ideal. Customers may be asked for photo ID for some items.

All material is reference only and usually up to three items can be viewed in the Search Room.

Our current policy is that personal photography/copying/scanning is not permitted.

The Search Room is open at the times shown below:
