Service Description

The Library holds a significant number of Special Collections which will be of interest to researchers locally, nationally and internationally. We welcome enquiries both from members of the University and external researchers who wish to consult material contained within the collections.

Because of their rarity, value or fragility in many cases, the Rare Books Collections are stored in special, environmentally controlled accommodation. Access is closely controlled, and handling guidelines are enforced. There is no unsupervised access, but within these constraints, the Library Arts Subject Team will make the material as accessible as possible.

Who can avail of the service?

Staff of the University, students of the University, members of the public, including researchers from other institutions.
