If the material requested is not able to be instantly viewed on site, researchers can use the Ngā Taonga internal phone (located in the main Reading Room) to speak with a member of our research team. Requests can be made via the contact us page.
Where materials can be provided for viewing, Ngā Taonga will arrange an appointment for a viewing in the Katherine Mansfield Reading Room (between 10.00am and 4.30pm Monday to Friday).
