Explore Special Collections

Explore Archives week is a national event to showcase and promote archives. Here in Special Collections we have a number of archival collections and we’d love to invite you to visit during our Explore Archives Week open afternoon and find out more about how you can use them. You’ll find us on Level 3 of the library, accessed by the main staircase/lift.

Monday 20th November 1 – 4 pm

We’ll have collections out themed around various subject areas. There will be collection items out on display for you to see and handle, plus plenty of opportunities to ask questions and find out more.
