How can I order reproductions of the original material?

The holdings of the Archive can only be accessed in person in the Archive’s Reading Room. Researchers can order a limited number of photocopies and/or digital images of documents while they are at the Archive, subject to the approval of the Archivist. Archive staff do not process orders for photocopies placed remotely by mail or telephone. For the rules of access and admission to the Warburg Archive see: https://warburg.sas.ac.uk/library-collections/warburg-institute-archive/

Who can access the Warburg Institute Archive and how?

Access to the Archive is generally given to all suitably qualified persons with a provable interest in its holdings after prior arrangement with the Archive’s staff (Warburg.Archive@sas.ac.uk). Researchers should provide an academic letter of introduction. Academic visitors may provide proof of their institutional affiliation instead.

Will I be able to read the material in the WIA?

The Archive’s holdings consist largely of manuscript material in seven different languages, mainly German. Transcriptions or translations are not available. An ability to read old German script is therefore essential.
