How Can I See Closed Records

Some records in the catalogue are marked as being ‘closed’. This message is a warning that we will not produce this item on demand.

There will be some kind of restriction, usually because the document contains personal information. Some records may be closed because they are either awaiting conservation or being repaired.

This does not always mean you cannot see them. You should contact a member of staff and get some advice.

You may be able to view a record or get information from it by asking to see it under Freedom of Information laws. We have to treat each of these requests on a case by case basis. There is more information about the Freedom of Information Act and how it affects your right to see records here. ‘Freedom of Information Act’.
