The Materials Room holds many fascinating special collections related to art and design. The room is usually open from 11am to 4pm Monday to Friday during term-time, although there may be teaching in the room, especially in the autumn term. A notice on the door will show if teaching sessions are scheduled, so you can plan your visit.
