The IET Archives are open to members of the IET, academic researchers and any member of the public with a genuine research topic. The majority of our collections are stored off-site with the core collections and rare books libraries remaining at the IET Archives Centre. We require at least one week's notice to retrieve items in preparation for your visit.
Before you visit us please search our online catalogue for the material that you require. Please contact us to book an appointment allowing one week's notice prior to your visit with the details of the material that you would like to consult. Please read how to use the archives for information on what to expect when visiting the Archives Centre.
