Covid-19 Research & Teaching

We are now providing a Scan & Send service to provide images of items in the collection for researchers. Currently this is available for material housed in the Special Collections Centre and the Special Collections and material, but once our staff have access to other museum stores similar arrangements will be developed for the Fine Art, Zoology, Geology and Herbarium collections. Please email requests and queries to or as appropriate.
