Library subscription scheme

The annual subscription costs just £40 (RAD members receive a 10% discount) and allows unrestricted onsite access to the general reference collections with the opportunity for users in the UK to borrow up to four books, at any one time, from circulating stock (with the exception of overnight or 3 day loans). The scheme is available for individuals or students involved in on-going personal or educational research. It is not available to individuals or companies researching for commercial business or publishing activities.

A standard loan period is three weeks or one week for restricted loan items. A book may be reserved if not immediately available and it is possible to renew loans provided that the material is not required by another user. All loans are subject to recall and overdue fines will be applied if items are not returned or renewed on time.
