Leeds University Library holds extensive archives (including original manuscripts, correspondence and tape-recordings) relating to poets working at or connected with the University between 1950 and 1980. As a whole, these resources bear witness to a vibrant regional literary culture centred on the University in the post-war period, and have much to offer scholars, historians, and readers of modern English poetry.

The Leeds Poetry Project was a joint project by the School of English and Leeds University Library, funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) in 2005, which brought together online information about archival collections relating to poets working at the University of Leeds between 1950 and 1980.
