Searching for Special Collections?

To discover what published material is available, including books and journals, you can begin by searching in StarPlus, the University's discovery platform. If your search result comes up with the letters ‘RBR’ under location or it's listed as belonging to a collection, then it's available from Special Collections. If it comes up with the letters ‘NFCA’ under location then it’s available from the National Fairground and Circus Archive (NFCA).
