New EES library partnerships
As of 1 January 2020, the Egypt Exploration Society's London library is now offering free access to students. The library is open from Monday to Thursday, 10:30-16:30 (see office closure dates here). Students are now able to use the library facilities for free upon showing a valid student ID to the Collections Manager on their first visit.
The EES library contains over 20,000 volumes related to the archaeology and history of Egypt, early travel and exploration in the Nile Valley, Egyptological collections throughout the world, the history of Egyptology, and more. Our library collection is fully searchable through our online catalogue.
We have also partnered with research organisations to provide free library access for their members and researchers upon presenting a signed and dated letter of introduction from a representative of the organisation stating that they are a current member or visiting researcher of their society or institution. The organisations that we are currently partnered with are:
- The Palestine Exploration Fund
- The Robert Anderson Trust
- The Association for the Study of Travel in Egypt and the Near East (ASTENE)
- Bloomsbury Summer School (student access during the year of their course)
