Special collections

Our special collections are located on the top floor of the Murray Health Building and are made up of unique and rare material to support teaching and research.

Due to the unique character of the material in our collections, items must be viewed in the special Collections Reading Room. Please see our policies for further information on the management of our collections and access arrangements.

Please contact us to arrange an appointment as access hours are restricted.

You can e-mail us at or write to us at Special Collections, Murray Library, University of Sunderland, Chester Road, Sunderland, SR1 3SD.
