After much careful consideration and in response to the latest Government advice, we have decided to close the Reading Room until further notice. We remain available to answer enquiries about the collection and to assist with your research, via the form below.
The Reading Room is open by appointment throughout the year to anyone who would like to consult the library collections of women’s writing, free of charge.
Our main collection focuses on women’s literature in English during the period 1600-1830, including rare early editions and some unique books. Our collection of books and manuscripts can be searched remotely, using our new online catalogue.
