Going digital

Hard copy resources laid out on display

Digitised content now in one new website

A new Digital Services webpage means you can search three sources of University digitised content from one place.

Have you ever wondered what digital collections we have, or seen images from our Special Collections and want to see more? Maybe you're more interested in open access, research and impact? Do you want to read a recent PhD dissertation online?

The Digital Library showcases a broad range of images from our collections, such as the medieval Book of Hours. You can zoom into the image for a close-up magnification of the beautiful manuscript. Or if you prefer something more out-of-this-world than illuminated lettering, you can examine the cover of a sci-fi journal from the 1920s. Search or browse our treasures, the choice is yours. This will be an ever growing library as new content is added from our state of the art digitisation studio.

White Rose Research Online (WRRO) offers an easy way to raise research profiles, store research outputs, and increase research impact.

White Rose eTheses Online (WREO). It's never been easier to find dissertations! This opens up the full text electronic versions of many PhD theses.

Also, if you have material for digitisation, or want to know how best to use the Digital Library, you can find out more on the Digital Services webpages. Take a look and please let us know what you think!
