I’ve really liked the flexibility around library opening hours, as an environment for learning it's friendly and helpful.
Discover over 150 collections of rare books and archives: manuscripts, letters, photographs, artworks, newspapers, maps, pamphlets, objects, digital files, and even J.B. Priestley's pipes. A wonderful resource of images, stories and ideas for students, staff and members of the public.
Our research support team is ready to assist with Open Access, literature searching, increasing citations, etc either in person, or through workshops and events.
