What's in the Archives and Special Collections? Who do I contact?

Staff and Researchers

For the ITA/IBA Cable Authority Archive 1953-1990, held off site, special arrangements are in place and you will need to make an appointment to view the material.

Archives and Special collections journals, such as The Listener and Radio Times, can be requested through the Help Zone or by emailing

Student use

If you wish to use the archives and special collections held at The Sir Michael Cobham Library, please apply using the Special Collections Permission Form. Forms are also available from the Help Zone. Please arrange to have the form countersigned by your tutor. This agreement is valid for one academic year, so you will only need to complete the form once.

Once you have a completed form, please contact Archives and Special Collections to arrange access. Further advice and support is available at the Help Zone.
