Research Collections

Developed to support research and teaching, the Research Collections have grown with the University and now include; an exceptional range of historical children’s literature of the 19th and 20th centuries, a significant local business archive, a range of materials relating to children’s theatre, and a major sporting archive.

All are welcome to view the collections and the wealth of material they contain whether for academic research or private interest.

Roger Fairman  (Research Librarian & repository Manager) and Janet Davidson  (Research Cataloguer) manage the collections with the assistance of a willing group of volunteers.
