Our Collections A-Z lists some of our collections. We will be updating this list regularly.
Special Collections is open to all and, although appointments are not usually required, it can be helpful to contact us in advance, particularly if travelling from a distance. Proof of ID is required; this should display your name, home address (not university or college) and signature. Customers may be asked for photo ID for some items.
