Volunteering

​We welcome volunteers, who play an important part in helping us care for and make available our collections.

Please note: We currently have a full complement of volunteers but welcome enquires from those interested.

Opportunities do become available from time to time so please do get in touch by emailing [email protected].

Volunteers have the opportunity to be involved in a range of different activities. One of our recent volunteer projects involved repackaging building plans, taking them out of their old envelopes and putting them in new archival quality envelopes, to ensure their long-term preservation. Other projects have involved transcription of documents, indexing, sorting and listing, and we have completed a major project to sort, repackage and re-list an important collection of architectural drawings. We currently support a team of over 25 volunteers and their work is invaluable to us.
