Access to YAS archive and library collections during 2015

We are currently preparing our archive collections for transfer to the University of Leeds Special Collections. Regrettably, we are not able to answer any enquiries, undertake research and copy orders, or provide archive appointments at present. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

We plan that our archive collections will become accessible again in 2016 through the University of Leeds. Details of how to access YAS collections at the University of Leeds will be available later this year. Please check out website for updates.

The YAS Library is at present open by appointment only, pending its transfer on long-term loan to Leeds University Library. For details of the opening hours until 31 March see the Opening Hours page; from 1 April 2015 the YAHS Library will be closed as preparations for the transfer are completed. The Library is expected to transfer to the University in September 2015. We regret that it is not at present clear how soon access to the Library will be available again. Full and Associate Members of the Society are, however, expected to be able to become members of Leeds University Library as part of their Society membership benefits, from October 2015.
