Services of the manuscript collection

Manuscripts and private archives are delivered from storage twice a day, at 10.00 and 14.00, but requests for such documents need to be submitted at least 30 minutes prior to these hours. It is possible to make a request for the material by sending an email message to the address: handrit (hja) or call the telephone number 525-5678, or come to the service desk on the 1st floor in the Main Library (Þjóðarbókhlaða). The Manuscript Department is open between 9 and 17 every week day. In the Reading Room of the Manuscript Department and the Icelandic National Collection there are specific rules of conduct which the library visitors are encouraged to study.
