About > Visit


Visit the archives
The STAT Archives functions as a reference library, and all STAT members and researchers of the Alexander Technique are welcome to visit. However, we do not have special facilities for readers, so visits have to be scheduled in such a way so as not to disturb the day-to-day business of STAT. Please note that it is not possible to borrow any items, nor is it possible for us to supply photocopies.

To arrange a visit
To arrange a visit please email the archivist with details of of the items which you wish to see. The archivist is only at the office about four hours a week, so booking in advance is necessary.
