Our Collections comprise of over two million documents, maps, photographs, paintings, periodicals, artefacts and books, and span 500 years of geography, travel and exploration.
PLEASE NOTE: The Society’s Annual International Conference will take place over four days from Tuesday 26 August to Friday 29 August 2014 (immediately following the August Bank Holiday).
The Foyle Reading Room will remain open throughout the Conference but will be much busier and noisier than usual, as we are providing IT and Internet services for our delegates.
Members planning to use the Reading Room around this period may wish to reschedule planned visits to avoid Conference week. We are not taking bookings for non-member research visits during these dates.
Please note that the Tea Room & Members Room will not be available during that week, therefore non-delegates will need to go out of the building for lunch and refreshments.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
