Manuscripts and Special Collections Online Catalogue

Welcome to our online catalogue

This catalogue contains records describing most of our manuscript and archive collections. Some collections are described in one top-level record, but others include detailed descriptions of each item. The catalogue also contains top-level descriptions for our printed book collections, but see NUsearch for detailed records of individual books.

Please contact us to make an appointment to view any item, quoting the Document Reference Number. We are also happy to help if you cannot find what you are looking for.
