Leeds University Library

Visit Special Collections

Everyone is welcome to use Special Collections.

Staff and students can use Special Collections without an appointment, but please contact us in advance if you wish to view University Archive material or material located at our Western Campus Store. Please bring your staff or student ID card.

Non-members of the University of Leeds must make an appointment to use any collection. Please bring photo ID (eg passport or driving licence) on your first visit in order to register with us.

There is no need to order the items you wish to see in advance (apart from those in the University Archive collection and those held at Western Campus Store) - we bring you your material on demand. You can, however, search our catalogues and databases online in advance to aid your research.

For more information about reading and borrowing entitlements within the University Library, see the main Leeds University Library membership page.
