Access to Research

Access to Research provides walk-in access to high quality academic research, available in UK public libraries. Over 1.5 million journal articles and conference proceedings are available to view using public computers in any Herefordshire Library with public computer access. Access to Research has been launched under the leadership of the Publishers Licensing Society.


Ancestry helps you build your family tree with access to a vast number of records from the UK and abroad, including the UK census from 1841-1901 and birth, marriage and death indexes. It is only available free of charge from computers in libraries. Visit the Ancestry website.

You may also access the site from home via the link, but Ancestry will charge you to access some information. Alternatively you may prefer to take out your own subscription to their website.
