Every year people from all walks of life consult our Research Collections. These include writers, genealogists, filmmakers, and curators. We are also consulted by journalists and photo researchers, independent enthusiasts, staff members, club members and students.
While we truly welcome all individuals, the Club’s resources are limited and our collections geared to the specialist. We encourage all potential researchers to make full use of their local libraries, archives and museums before exploring what the Club has to offer. Priority among researchers will be given to those who are seeking information unique to our collections.
The Curator will endeavour to direct all researchers to appropriate sources, but cannot do research on behalf of users or duplicate and send large amounts of information. Those wishing to consult the collections should contact the Curator at the address below for general guidance and to make an appointment.
