Access to the IHR building: Library and public areas
From 28 September 2020, the IHR Library has partially reopened for readers seeking access to collections.
Selected Library reading rooms are currently open Monday to Wednesday 11:00 - 15:00. Pre-booking of desks is essential. Information on Library access and how to book a desk is available here. Access to the Library is via the main IHR entrance, with access to Senate House via the Russell Square entrance.
Please note: aside from the Library, the IHR remains closed.
IHR staff continue to work remotely. We continue to provide as many resources and services as possible online, including events and seminars.
For regular updates on IHR activities, please consult the homepage of the IHR website, the IHR's Twitter, the IHR blog, On History or sign up for the IHR's monthly Bulletin.
We also continue to help with enquiries where possible. Please see contact details.
