Caring for your national collection
10 February 2020
Over the coming months we’re making some changes at the Library to better care for your national collection. We’re upgrading our oldest compactus, completing some building work and transitioning to new collection delivery times.
Delivery times are changing
From 10 February 2020 some of our collection delivery times are changing.
To make it easier for you, we’ve broken it into two types of requests:
- Deliveries from onsite
- Deliveries from offsite
If in doubt, order your requests the day before your visit for delivery the next weekday. You should also log into the catalogue and check the progress of your requests.
For a full breakdown, see our collection delivery times. Check these again from the 24 February, as we will be making additional updates.
We’re building a better Library
From February to May 2020, we’re doing some building work at the Library. During March and April 2020 we are replacing some of our roof installation. For a short period of time, we will have limited or no access to some manuscript collections.
If you are planning a visit to the Library in March and/or April, request your manuscript material in early March and let us know what day/s you’ll be visiting so we can make sure the material is ready for you.
When ordering your manuscript material for March and/or April, you can easily let us know when you’d like you view it when you place your order through the catalogue or via Ask a Librarian.
