Conservation and Collections: Cadbury Research Library

The Cadbury Research Library, in the Muirhead Tower, is the home for Special Collections and Archives of the University of Birmingham. The collections consist of more than 3 million manuscripts and over 120,000 rare and early printed books dating from 1471, encompassing a wide range of subjects. 

The library is responsible for directly supporting the University's research, learning and teaching agenda by collecting and making fully accessible all collections and seeking to acquire material which ties into this agenda. 

We welcome all interested users, both staff and students of the University and members of the public. Find out about using the collections
