Not sure where to post this, but I wondered whether anyone has any insight into when periodicals are likely to be available again at the Imperial War Museum. This is obviously one of the most important collections of military material in the country (and also happens to be near my home). I have been trying to access some regimental magazines for some years now, and have inquired several times during this period. The most recent response (in May) was as follows:
"Thank you for your enquiry relating to the Imperial War Museum's periodical collection.
"I am sorry to inform you that we still do not have a date for when the collection will become available. If you have not already done so I do suggest that you try the British Library to see whether they hold copies of the journal.
Since the British Library and National Army Museum don't hold the material I need, I'm getting a bit desperate.
Has anyone else had a similar problem? And does anyone know when this material is likely to be available again?
All the best,
