About this event

Did you know that SOAS Library has unique collections of archives and manuscripts? Are you interested in history? Or are you looking for inspiration for your research?

SOAS Library’s Special Collections will be opening its doors to all SOAS students and staff on Thursday 16 November, 11:00am to 3:00pm. Come along to our Reading Room on Level F of the library for a chance to view a display of material from across our diverse and unique collection of archives, manuscripts and rare books.

Our archivists and curators will be available throughout the day to answer your questions and guide you through how to access the materials, use the catalogues and use the materials for your own research or publications.

Or simply come and be curious. Everyone is welcome.
