We are happy to offer tours of the Brynmor Jones Library and Hull History Centre for any member of staff at the University of Hull. This page provides more detail on what we can offer, as well as the opportunity to request a tour.

Please note: Tours of our physical buildings are currently suspended. Tour requests can still be made and we will process these when we are able to facilitate in-person access. 

Brynmor Jones Library (BJL)

A member from CLR will be happy to provide individual staff tours of the University Library’s facilities and collections. You can find out more about the superb collections of printed and digital resources available to staff and students alike and all of the services on offer. The Library also offers excellent IT facilities, flexible learning spaces and boasts fantastic views of the campus and the city from the Observatory on the 7th floor. This is in addition to the wonderful art collection, impressive collection of rare books and a chance to relax in the 80-seater café on the ground floor.

During the tour we will also highlight the support and services we can help you with in relation to our collections, research and academic study skills. You can also watch our video tour on YouTube

During the tour, you will have opportunities to ask any questions you might have regarding archives, including the following:
