In line with the Warburg Institute's COVID policies and procedures the library will be open on Tuesdays between 11:00 and 15:30 only.
Beside the duty librarian, only one visitor can attend the RNS/BNS library on each Tuesday.
Visitors must request an appointment to visit the RNS/BNS Library at least 1 week in advance by emailing the librarian at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
Please wait until your request has been confirmed by the RNS/BNS Librarian before making any travel arrangements or coming to the Warburg.
The Warburg will not admit anyone without an appointment into the building
It is momentous that the RNS/BNS Library is able to reopen, allowing members to again access this important resource. Hopefully we will be able to return to our normal access and hours before long; once COVID procedures allow.
