Our collections

Our special collections hold a number of unique archives and contain original research materials for many subject areas.

These materials provide great scope for original research and the potential to complement teaching and learning at the university. The collections comprise rare books and other significant printed works, and archives that include a full range of materials such as photographs and maps.
