School groups can undertake self-guided visits to the Library, but teachers must book before their visit. When you book, we'll provide you with information and resources for your visit.
Self-guided groups must be no larger than 12 students per staff member. Only one group should be in an exhibition or study space at a time.
On the day of your visit one teacher should report to the reception desk in the foyer so he or she can be briefed and receive a visiting staff badge.
Before you visit
We encourage you to explore our student and teacher resources and our useful links for teachers before you arrive. These extensive education resources draw on the Library's expertise and rich collections to teach students history, research and literacy skills, and foster professional development.
Request a self-guided visit
Requests for self-guided student visits must be made at least four weeks prior to your intended visit.
Once we've received your request, you'll receive an email containing details of your request. We will then contact you within five working days to confirm your booking.
