To facilitate serious and extended research, the Library has available a limited
number of individual shelves where books may be charged for long term use. Shelf
holders must use the reading rooms and their books at least once a week. To
be assigned a shelf, researchers must apply in person to the Research Facilities
Officer in the Main Reading Room.
Book deliveries are made to research facility shelves at regular intervals.
A very small number of assigned desks are also available.
