The Modern Records Centre: partial resumption of service - update

The Modern Records Centre is now beginning to return to a fuller service. MRC staff are now able to access the building and collections in order to provide a more prompt enquiry and digitisation service. However, we regret that we are unable to provide visiting access for external researchers at the moment. We will endeavour to support remote researchers with advice, information and digitisation of materials as far as possible.

Screens have been ordered to help provide a safe environment for both staff and researchers but have yet to arrive. Once these have been received we will be opening, initially for Warwick researchers only. We will publish information about the reopening date and how to book as soon as the arrangements have been confirmed.

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.
