The MERL and Special Collections Open Access Library is now fully accessible again! In this library, which can be accessed from the Reading Room, you can find reference works relating to our Special Collections and to Samuel Beckett, as well as the library collection of the MERL, consisting of about 50,000 books, pamphlets and periodical volumes. We have been working hard to improve the layout of these collections to make it easier for you to quickly find the items that you need. We have also been able to create more space for future purchases and gifts.
This is a summary of the changes we have made:
- We have integrated our Landscape Institute collection into the main MERL Library
- We have created a dedicated pamphlet room for MERL and MAFF pamphlets
- We have turned a storeroom into an additional room for the MERL periodicals
We would like to thank our readers for their patience while the works were taking place.
