We welcome researchers at all levels.


  • Our extensive library of books by, about or related to Jane Austen is situated in the house museum and can be visited without an appointment.

  • If you would like to use a quiet area for research or need to research aspects of our collection or archive please phone and this can be arranged.

  • If your research requires you to have access to our reserve collection or archive you will be required to submit a reference from an academic supervisor or similar.
