Manuscripts - treatment and use
- Guests in the reading room who need to use the manuscript collection for research should contact the manuscript librarian. Researchers from outside are advised to e-mail the librarian (firstname.lastname@example.org) prior to visiting with notice about the manuscripts they want to consult.
- Available photographs should be used if adequate instead of the manuscript itself. Please check the photograph catalogue and the digital collection on handrit.is or ask the librarian.
- It is not possible to borrow more than three manuscripts at a time. Certain manuscripts are restricted from usage.
- Users have to return manuscripts to the manuscript librarian before 5 p.m. and manuscripts are not served within half an hour before that time.
