The archive is available for on-site consultation by members of the College of Podiatry, students, academic researchers and the general public upon request. Some of the material is on display at Quartz House. However, much of the collection is in storage but can be retrieved if requested.
We are in the process of transferring our collection to a new cataloguing system - MODES. At present we do have a searchable list of holdings. Please contact the Curator with any enquiries.
DonationsWe are currently unable to take donations in any quantity. However, we would still be interested in acquiring any unique and unusual items. If you have anything you would like to donate, please contact the Curator in the first instance. Donations and deposits can only be accepted with a signed agreement form detailing the specific terms and conditions of donation or deposit. The Centre will not accept donations or deposits on behalf of the College where the Committee has not been party to the agreement.
EnquiriesWe are happy to answer routine enquiries submitted via email regarding access and use of collections. Unfortunately, it is not possible to answer detailed research enquiries, other than to give general guidance as to what material is held. For complex research enquiries, it is recommended that researchers visit in person.
