Ordering material


Manuscripts and archives

The Manuscripts Online Catalogue describes our manuscript and archive collections. Anyone can view the collections in the Manuscripts and Special Collections Reading Room at King's Meadow Campus.


Please contact us to arrange to see any of our manuscripts and archives, quoting the Document Reference numbers of the items in which you are interested.

Information about visiting our Reading Room is available on our website.


If you are unable to visit in person, it is usually possible for you to purchase copies of manuscript and archive items. All requests for copying are assessed by staff who will advise you of any physical and legal constraints affecting the copying of material. Copies are provided for the purposes of research or private study only. Advice on our reprographics policy and pricing is available on our website.


Special Collections

Our special printed book collections are catalogued on the University's library catalogue NUsearch. You can perform filtered searches for particular Special Collections, and search for books, journal articles and more, both in our libraries and elsewhere. Anyone can view the collections in the Reading Room but they need to be requested in the same way as Manuscripts and Archives.


Historic Collections Online

The Manuscripts Online Catalogue does not contain images of the collections. Some images of items from our collections are available online through Historic Collections Online on our website.
