Manuscripts and Special Collections

Spotlight On The Collections

‘Spotlight on the Collections’ features six broad subject areas – such as health and travel – for which there is abundant research material in the manuscript and rare book collections. Each topic contains about seven themes. It introduces the subject with a brief text to support the images, transcripts of documents, and – in the case of the University’s history – a selective bibliography and chronology.

This online resource aims to raise awareness of the range and depth of the holdings in Manuscripts and Special Collections. It is for all students, researchers and visitors to this site. It will help you to see what kinds of archives and books we collect. Or it may simply provide material for you to browse and enjoy.

The sources featured in ‘Spotlight’ represent only a very small selection of the entire University collections. Potential users finding items of interest are advised to contact the staff in Manuscripts and Special Collections for further information on relevant holdings.
