Co-operative Archive Visit the archive Our Reading Room is now open for appointments Wednesday to Friday 10:00 - 16:00 To book a visit to do your own research at Holyoake House please email [email protected] It is helpful to have a list of the materials that you want to see in advance so we can prepare them. We close for lunch and ask researchers to go offsite during this time. Bookable services Initial enquiries and doing your own research is free but if you need us to do remote research for you (if you don't wish to travel) or answer a more in-depth research enquiry the following charges may apply. *Please consider that this may be cheaper than the cost of travelling to Manchester for a visit in person. £15 for scanning identified material (when we are asked for a specific image or document). £15 for 30 minutes of research. If further research is required this would be charged at £30 per hour with a minimum of 1 hour, maximum 3 hours. If we do research for you, scans and information sent by email or File sharing platforms will not have additional charges. The cost covers our staff's time. Documents can be transcribed if requested at the additional rate of £10 per page.
