Blog Update

With the Society being quieter over the Summer months, the blog is taking a well-deserved break this week. However, we will be back next week with updates on the Digital Library and a write up by the Society’s Director on the Epic Iran Exhibition which is currently taking place at the V&A Museum.

Collections Announcement:

We are currently experiencing a high level of requests from readers wanting to consult the Society’s collections within the Reading Room. Therefore, we ask readers to please try to book with us in advance by either emailing the Society’s Librarian at or the Society’s Archivist at   

Please note that during busy weeks we might limit readers to one appointment per week. We would also like to remind readers to please notify us is in advance if you are unable to make your appointment so that we can allocate it to someone else.
