Details of how to search for and find our collections.
For details of how to consult an item from Special Collections, please see our Access and Facilities page.
We maintain an on-going cataloguing programme for all our collections, and records for newly catalogued items will appear under 'Archives and manuscripts' and 'Printed books' as they are created. For those items awaiting catalogue records, physical lists and indexes can be consulted in the same way as other material.
When using the Explore service for printed books, click 'Special Collections' under 'Library' in the left-hand 'Refine My Results' column after receiving your search results.
