About our collections

University of Nottingham Libraries acquire materials to facilitate teaching, learning and research at the University. In doing so, we support the principles of intellectual freedom and universal access to information.

We do not exclude materials because of the ideas or opinions expressed within the content. We recognise our libraries hold material containing language or attitudes which may cause harm by contributing to wider societal prejudices. The presence of any particular material within our collections does not imply our endorsement of the ideas or opinions expressed within. We welcome an open dialogue with our community. If you have concerns about any language used within our discovery tool, NUsearch, or within any particular item in our collections, please make a note of the item’s Barcode and contact us.
