Subject strengths


Please note: We reorganised this presentation of our subject strengths in early November. So if you have used subject strengths before, you may now need to look under a different heading or view our new Collection guides.

The vast holdings of Special Collections cover wide-ranging subjects across hundreds of thousands of irreplaceable manuscripts and archives and nearly 200,000 rare books. The subject strengths below feature most heavily among the material held. 

Other ways to search Special Collections

We are continually working to improve access to information on our holdings, and many collections await cataloguing. If you cannot find information on your subject, contact us.
