The books, pamphlets, manuscripts, correspondence, photographs, and maps held in  Special Collections & Archives  are considered to be of lasting research value and include examples of the earliest printed works (incunabula), books and pamphlets published between the 16th and early 19th centuries (STC and Wing items) as well as more modern titles. In order to preserve the material for future readers these collections are housed in a secure and environmentally controlled setting.

Additional information is available on our Special Collections & Archives web pages
