VMCC Library

I stumbled across the VMCC Library for the first time tonight. Pretty interesting stuff. Anyone familiar with them or ever used them before? From the website:

The VMCC now has custody of all the original Motorcycle Factory records that have been held by the Science Museum in London since the early 1980s.

This collection contains the surviving records of a very large part of the once mighty British motorcycle industry.

This is the largest collection of motorcycle related paperwork in the world and an invaluable source of information and technical data for motorcycle enthusiasts. Although the library is accessible to all, members enjoy a discount on any charges associated with enquiries, research or photocopies.

Sounds like they probably have the original Triumph factory records. Naturally I'm wondering if they might be able to tell me which dealer my 1951 was shipped to as new.
