Support for Marketing and Fundraising
Special Collections can help with the marketing and fundraising activities of other parts of the University in many ways. For example, we can offer:
- Large collections of historic images of the University
- Details of significant stories and people from its history
The 100 Objects exhibition was created partly to make such stories and images freely available - take a look! It includes a much-loved film of 1960s students, the meaning of the coat of arms, the story of the mace, Emm Lane and Heaton Mount, and much more.
More generally, the collections are unique and distinctive assets which help make the case for the University in all kinds of ways. For example, our world-class peace archives, books and pamphlets are inter-twined with the unique stories of the City's radical past and the development of Peace Studies at the University.
We're happy to host distinguished visitors or to help develop your events - please contact the Special Collections Librarian, Alison Cullingford, to discuss, giving as much notice as possible.
