Ask a librarian

Do you have a research or collection query? Need help finding information? Ask one of our librarians!

From 19th-century Indian rainfall records to WWI diaries, film composers to the longest word in the English language and more, our expert staff can help answer your questions and offer research guidance.

Ask us online

Use our live Ask a Librarian Chat service to get real-time assistance from a librarian.

Fill out our online inquiry form and receive an answer by email.

You can check your question's progress and amend or cancel it after it's submitted.

Please note: Library staff are working offsite and responding to inquiries. It can take a little time to find you the best information available and we have no access to physical collections, so please bear with us and a member of our team will be in touch as soon as possible.
