UCL Library Services has extensive archives including rare books, manuscripts, personal papers, historical records and artefacts across a range of subjects. Each year there are themed exhibitions in the Main Library that draw particularly on highlights from UCL Special Collections.  There are also both temporary and permanent exhibitions at other UCL libraries.  On occasion, the libraries arrange exhibitions at alternative UCL and external locations too.
