Coronavirus closure

In accordance with the University of Warwick's policy to suspend all but business critical activities during the current Coronavirus outbreak, the Modern Records Centre will be closing on 20 March 2020. The duration of the closure is currently uncertain but will be at least 3 months, probably more.

Staff will continue to work (from home) to improve access to the MRC's resources, answer enquiries and provide a public service for our researchers. Inevitably the service that we can provide will be limited - we will have no access to the physical collections in our strongrooms, and so will be unable to fulfil copying orders or provide detailed answers to some enquiries.

We wish all of our researchers and colleagues the best during this current period and look forward to seeing you when we reopen.

More information on the university's current coronavirus policy is available elsewhere on the university website, including the Vice-Chancellor's announcement of the closure and information about how the closure will affect the university library as a whole.
