Charles Lyell Notebook

Current access arrangements

Following the Main Library’s designation as an essential research lab for the humanities, the Centre for Research Collections has been asked to lead on the return to library services on campus. It was recognised that the CRC already has in place easily adaptable handling procedures, safety equipment and staff expertise on providing safe access to collections that will be deployed to create a safe research environment.

Please note that we have reduced capacity due to social distancing measures, and access will be by appointment only.

The Papers of Sir Charles Lyell are currently the only archive of the Lyell collection open for in-person research and is subject to the availability of spaces in the CRC Reading Room, and the discretion of the User Services Team.

Please read the following information available here, and directions to submit an inquiry or request an appointment. https://www.ed.ac.uk/information-services/library-museum-gallery/crc
