NOTICE OF TEMPORARY CLOSURE OF THE ARCHIVES DUE TO ESSENTIAL BUILDING WORK
ARRANGEMENTS AT THE ARCHIVES AND SPECIAL COLLECTIONS OVER THE SUMMER
The Archives and Special Collections will be closed to readers from the 17th of April until the 1st of September 2023. This is in order to replace the shelving in the strong room, and so improve our storage capabilities. This work comes following the recent substantial award of external funding from the Arts and Humanities Research Council.
However, there will be an opportunity for readers to make a “special request” to consult rare books and some archival collections over the Summer (from the 22nd of May onwards), by appointment only.
Those readers will need to pre-order documents i.e. send us a list of the items that they wish to see by the 28th of April 2023.
Unfortunately, only a limited number of documents can be pre-ordered and any requests received after this date cannot be considered.
We are conscious of the sudden interruption to our usual service and apologise for the short notice.
If you have any queries you can contact us on email@example.com or 01248 383276.
Welcome to the Archives and Special Collections which forms part of Digital Services at Bangor University.
We are responsible for the collection and long-term preservation of manuscripts, archival collections and a diverse range of rare books and printed material.
Our aim is to ensure that our resources are accessible to all researchers, free of charge. We actively promote these collections as valuable research and learning tools and engage the wider community in our activities as well as the staff and students within the University.
Our collections are open to the public and can be consulted at the Archives and Special Collections which is located in the Main Arts building at Bangor University. The repository comprises of a search room for quiet study and an education room for group visits.
The Archives and Special Collections is an accredited archive service - the UK quality standard which recognises good performance in all areas of archive service delivery.
