A Literary Legacy: D H Lawrence at The University of Nottingham

The exhibition ran in late 2001, and was extended to early 2002 by popular demand. It celebrated the growth of the University's Lawrence Collections over more than forty years.

Today, the Lawrence Collection is one of the University's great resources, drawing students and visitors from all over the world.
