As many of us have found during this surreal time we’re currently living in, all those books and articles we wish we had picked up a copy or scanned is now an almost impossible task. With the closing of libraries, I wanted to bring to researcher’s attention to a new Facebook group that has been created to help students and researchers access any material that they may need.
Join the community of medieval art historians/ architectural historians/archaeologists who are happy to help out one another in accessing each other’s libraries (electronic & paper). Need a chapter of a book that you can’t get your hands on? Post in the group and hopefully someone will have that very book sitting on their bookshelf.

In addition to this, The British Archaeological Association has created a request platform where you can also request items (The BAA has a lot of people who don’t use Facebook so this is another great resource!): https://docs.google.com/document/d/1zgD8ProWOc8nrhk7_sm_LXL1eSGfdaOZGL2b50W8ZAY/edit?usp=sharing&fbclid=IwAR3d3rOBpq2ua1ENtScWXhJci1X4g9SgNKTJSMzdmIZO_GetmEwpm-g0UeM
