These sections make significant contributions to the CGS information system through improvements to the content and accessibility of databases, and by providing public information services. The work of the individual sections is coordinated to ensure that a comprehensive and professional service is provided. Researchers have at their disposal two stylishly equipped study rooms where items from the CGS library, archive and collections can be examined on request.
