We support and encourage the use of our object, archival and library collections in research, and we can support you in utilising our collections for teaching and research.

We can help to deliver hands-on group sessions with material from our unique collections of archives, manuscripts, rare books and objects.

We can also deliver archivist- and librarian-led training sessions designed to help students and staff understand and locate primary resources for their own teaching and research needs.

Using our collections:

  • Helps develop a clear understanding of the role of original material in research
  • Increases students’ knowledge in locating primary resources here and elsewhere
  • Gives students unique insight into their subject and the possibility of original research opportunities

Full details of how these sessions work and how to book are available on the University’s Special Collections website.
