[BAA-ebulletin 00551] RAS Library - Saturday Openings

BAA electronic bulletin


The Librarian of the Royal Astronomical Society would like to remind
BAA members that the Library is open on twelve Saturdays a year,
normally the 1st Saturday unless that is a Bank Holiday weekend in
which case it is the second Saturday.

This facility is specifically intended for spare time researchers and
amateur astronomers who may find it difficult to get to Piccadilly on
a weekday. Unfortunately the response has been very poor and if more
use is not made of it, it may not be possible to justify continuing
this facility.

These Saturday openings are also a good time for members of amateur
Astronomical Societies and similar bodies to visit the RAS and view
the building and some of the treasures in the collections. The
Librarian is happy to consider requests for such visits.

The Library Committee has approved of the continuation of the Saturday
openings for 2011, the dates being;

8 Jan, 5 Feb, 5 March, 2 April, 7 May, 4 June, 2 July, 6 Aug, 3 Sept,
1 Oct, 5 Nov, 3 Dec.

BAA members are reminded that they should either email
( or telephone (020 7734 4582 Xt 215) to make an
appointment and it is essential that any readers who may require
specialised material to be produced, especially older runs of
journals, make contact in advance as these may be in another building
which is not accessible on Saturdays.
