Enquiries & Copies


Nothing pleases us more than helping our users with their research. Ahead of your visit, or for those unable to attend in person, we are able to offer an enquiry service.

Please email us at archives@fxplus.ac.uk providing as much information as possible about your research interests. You may find our Collections Guide, Research Guides and Catalogues of use to guide your initial research, but if you can't find what you are looking for, please just get in touch.

We aim to answer your enquiry in good time but please be aware that during busy periods during term time there may be a short delay.

While there is no charge for our enquiry service, there may be costs for the provision of copies and limitations on how much research we can undertake on your behalf.
