The majority of the printed books in Special Collections are catalogued on the OneSearch Library catalogue.
HINT: You can refine your search to individual collections by choosing the name of the collection from the drop-down menu under Location in the menu on the left-hand-side.
For those collections, that are not yet catalogued, there are printed catalogues and classification schemes available to download or to consult in the Reading Room. There are also spreadsheets listing some of the archival holdings, available to download below, to help identify material in the archives. If you identify a particular area of interest or are having trouble finding what you're looking for, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the details to make an appointment.
Unfortunately, due to limited staffing, we can only spend a short period of time on individual enquiries and are unable to offer a paid research service, but you are welcome to make an appointment to visit.
