RCB Library Notes

New public access times for Archives and Manuscripts in the RCB Library

Commencing in February 2019, members of the public are advised that access to the Archives and Manuscripts Collections in the Library is restricted to four days per week: Monday to Thursday.

Opening hours remain the same: 9.30am to 1.00pm and 2.00pm to 5.00pm with last orders for manuscripts and archives at 4.30pm each evening (Mon–Thurs) but going forward there will be NO access to Archives and Manuscripts on Fridays.

This will allow us to consolidate limited staff time, and facilitate our work on digitization.

Access to the Printed Collection for ordinands, clergy and Library Members is not affected by this change, with the Printed Collections being available five days per week, and Library services for books remain unchanged.
