Opportunities for research at the University Archive & Special Collections Centre (UA&SCC) In-Person / Online

This workshop will provide you with an opportunity to meet Special Collections Librarian Nancy Jackson. She will present a selection of rare and culturally significant items which represent different collections within the University Archive & Special Collections Centre.

We will share opportunities for research at the Centre, while showcasing publications which exhibit a range of different bindings, paper and printing techniques. You will be provided with opportunities to browse the items in-person and to ask questions about the items, collections and potential links to your research interests.

The session can be viewed online and you can follow-up with an appointment to visit the items in the University Archive & Special Collections Centre. Join us to discover how resources within these collections could be incorporated into your teaching and support your research.

Venue is on City Centre Campus - C416 (Curzon building) - with an online option. The slides of the presentation and the collection menu will be share with online participants. However, the in-person visit to the venue (and even handling the rare material in some cases) would give you the opportunity observe and be inspired by the materials closely. We therefore strongly encourage you to book in-person if circumstances allow. If you cannot make it in person after booking, please cancel the in-person booking and register an online booking instead. Places are limited. Only 12 in-person bookings, due to space restriction.
