National Gallery Research Centre

National Gallery Research Centre

The National Gallery Research Centre supports the Gallery’s research strategy and ensures that its research resources are made available to the widest possible audience, including both national and international visitors and digital users, as well as Gallery staff. 

It has primary responsibility for managing, conserving and providing access to the Gallery's library and archive collections. Additionally, Research Centre staff are engaged in planning and supporting academic programmes, including seminars, colloquia, study days and conferences, as well as working closely with research-active staff across the Gallery, academic partners and collaborators.

Access

The Research Centre is open to visiting academics and post-graduate students from Tuesday to Friday, 10am-5pm.  The National Gallery's public records are available within the Centre to all members of the public. You will need to make an appointment in advance.

Although the Research Centre is not generally available to undergraduate students, those who require access can be accommodated if they provide a letter of recommendation (in advance of a visit) from an academic referee indicating the need to visit the Research Centre.

Finding aids

The archive catalogue is available online.

No online library catalogues exist at present; please contact the Research Centre for information about individual items in the library's collection.
