Libraries of other institutions

Institutional libraries inevitably reflect the purpose of the institution. The University of Nottingham holds three parish libraries from Oakham, Elston, and Coleorton, which are naturally rich in early theological and related titles.

Queen Elizabeth's School Library consists principally of classical texts, theology, and church history, and about half of the collection was printed before 1600. In contrast, the 20th-century printed books from a branch of the Magdeburg Public Library represent a typical East German library in the last years of the GDR. They are part of the holdings of the former Institute of German, Swiss and Austrian Affairs (INGASA) at the University. The remains of the Nottingham Medico-Chirurgical Society Library are also held at the University.

The manuscript collections include a few catalogues and adminstrative records of other institutions' libraries.
