Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire Archives runs two public search rooms for the consultation of original material, one at the Town House in the city centre and one at Old Aberdeen House, to the north of the city. Please note that different material is held at each office.

As spaces are limited, all readers are asked to book a seat in advance, particularly those readers coming from a distance or who intend to work in either office for several days or weeks. Please note the following public holidays where both offices will be closed:
