Following the establishment of a Library and Archives for the use of the GNM staff to fulfill daily duties and tasks, the collections will also be made available to the general public, especially students, researchers and scholars, with a legitimate desire to use them. Access will be granted upon completion of an application for access to the collections form describing the research project and indicating the collection(s) to be consulted. The Library and Archives will have specific and limited access times unless volunteer staff is available.
