Step One: Do I need to come to the Library?
Please first ensure that the material you wish to see is not available online, either through:
- the Johnson online catalogue
- the John Johnson Collection: an archive of printed ephemera
- or our various projects
If there are already surrogates, you will be asked to use these, at least in the first instance. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are in doubt.
Step Two: Contact the Librarian
The Collection may be consulted by appointment only. If you have established that you need to consult original materials, please contact the Librarian of the John Johnson Collection to discuss what you want to see and to make an appointment. All material is ordered through the Librarian. As it is currently stored off-site you must allow time for it to arrive in the Reading Room.
Step Three: Is your reader's card category 'A'?
If not, you will need a further recommendation. Please ask email email@example.com in the first instance for advice.
Step Four: Booking a seat in the Reading Room
You should Book a seat in the Rare Books and Manuscripts Reading Room at the Weston Library.
