How to use the Wolfson Centre for archival research

The Wolfson Centre is open to the public free of charge. Appointments are essential and material should be ordered in advance by emailing archives.appointments@birmingham.gov.uk. It may take up to a week before you receive a response, so please allow sufficient time in your request. Also, please note that we may not be able to give you direct access to some items, for example because they are too fragile or for data protection reasons.

Please check the Archival Catalogue for catalogue references to order in advance of your visit. Also, be aware not all listings of records are available online and other catalogues are only available in the search room.

On arrival, please sign the visitors’ book and deposit coats and bags into a free locker.

We require all visitors to the Wolfson Area to bring identification with them.
