Phased reopening of services
Following a phased reopening to the public, we have now resumed our normal opening hours. Appointments for visits are compulsory until further notice.
For further details please see the following web page:
If you are thinking of visiting us, please see our Planning a Visit and Social Distancing pages for further vital information.
The William Salt Library, Stoke on Trent City Archives and the Lichfield History Access Point will remain closed to the public until further notice.
Planned events, exhibitions and on-site volunteering also remain suspended.
This web page will be updated to reflect any service changes.
On-site staffing is being kept to a minimum. Some Staffordshire Archives and Heritage staff are currently redeployed to support the county council’s commitment to keep vital services running, supporting vulnerable residents.
In addition to answering written enquiries (by email or letter), we are pleased that we can now respond positively to requests for research and scanning and photography orders.
Enquiries for the William Salt Library and the County Museum should be sent to Staffordshire Record Office. We are also able to fulfil some customer orders for images.
