Information on using the Archive
Researchers use the APGRD Study Room, located on the first floor of the Ioannou Centre for Classical and Byzantine Studies at 66 St Giles' Oxford, to consult the archive collections and our comprehensive reference library.
Instructions on how to use our online databases to request archive material will be sent on confirmation of an appointment. While our reference library is free to browse, the archive material is not and items must be requested in advance of any visit.
Pens are not permitted to ensure the preservation of the archive materials. Researchers are free to use the Common Room and the hot drinks vending machine during their visit but only bottled water is permitted in the Study Room. The building's main entrance is swipe-access only; please use the intercom to enter the building and report to Reception. The building is fully accessible.
