Update on Caird Library, National Maritime Museum

The Caird Library are delighted to announce that the move of the collections into the new stores is on schedule to be completed by Christmas, so the full Library service and access to the collections will start in January 2012. Please see the latest update at


The full library service will begin from Tuesday 17 January on a trial period, when the Library will be open from Tuesday-Thursday. During this time, we ask that you bear with us as we'll also be continuing to update locations in the stores, training staff and getting used to the new ordering system and retrieval process.

From Monday 30 January 2012 the library will be open six days a week, Monday to Friday 10.00-16.45, late night Thursday until 19.45 and Saturdays 10.00-13.00 and 14.00-16.45. Please note that to use the Library and access the collections, you must register online for a new style three year reader's ticket at https://archiveandlibrary.rmg.co.uk/aeon/. Guidance on how to request items using Aeon will be posted on the Museum website shortly.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Caird Library in 2012.
