Where to consult Special Collections

Most Special Collections items are currently located off-site. During the years of the Weston's refurbishment the collections were stored remotely and are now being carefully moved back in coorindated sequences until summer 2016.

Once material is in the Weston stack on a permanent basis we expect to be able to retrieve requests within 1 hour. Meanwhile, off-site items should be ordered 24 hours in advance, with deliveries of material made twice-daily (Monday-Friday only).

As the quantity of on-site collections increases, the frequency and speed of deliveries to reading rooms will also increase. Some special collections material will remain permanently off-site and subject to a 24 hour delivery time.

 Ordering of Special Collections material

Material for consultation in the Weston Library may be requested in two ways:

  1. Online order via SOLO.
  2. Material not available via SOLO can be ordered using green slips, which should be handed to staff in the Mackerras Reading Room (Level 1) and the David Reading Room (Level 5). Material is then delivered to the chosen reading room reserve (or as directed by staff).

Last orders for same-day delivery of material held on site is 4.00pm on weekdays and 3.00pm on Saturdays.

Currently, on-site material will be delivered every two hours. When the full stack delivery service becomes operational, on-site material will be delivered hourly, Monday-Saturday, up to 8 times a day.

Off-site material will be delivered twice daily (Monday-Friday only), by 12 noon and 4.00pm.

Status for consultation

The tables below, divided into curatorial sections, show the current status for consultation of Special Collections:

  • collections available on-site at the Weston
  • collections in off-site storage, for which arrangements need to be made in advance of a visit to the Weston

The data will be updated regularly as the collections move into the Weston therefore please continue to consult this page to check collection locations.

Also shown are the locations of open-access resources in the Weston Library.
