Home to over 100 collections of rare books and archives on the history of the University, Bradford, Yorkshire, history, politics, literature, archaeology and much more. We have manuscripts, letters, photographs, artworks, newspapers, maps, pamphlets, objects, pipes (Priestley's) and digital files. The J. B. Priestley Archive is probably our best-known collection.
The award-winning 100 Objects online exhibition introduces the collections by sharing stories and images of some of our most compelling objects.
June 2014: We are the first English university to achieve Archive Accreditation! More on this story soon.
