How can students and academics access the collections for teaching and research while the Museum is closed?
Students who have scheduled teaching in the Museum should contact their faculties to discuss teaching schedules and arrangements. Scholars and researchers who have booked sessions in the Museum’s study rooms will be contacted by a member of Ashmolean staff. Every effort will be made to help scholars and researchers who need information from our academic departments and subject-area experts, but there may be a period of delay in providing information and images.
