Archive colletions

Our online archive catalogue is the gateway for researchers to access more comprehensive information about our archive and manuscript collections. This searchable web catalogue includes both collection level descriptions about the majority of our holdings and the accompanying detailed catalogues of many of these collections.

Rare book collections

This is the main catalogue in which most of our rare books and printed collections are listed. You can search by author, title and keyword, as well as restrict your search to specific formats e.g. periodicals or to specific site libraries, such as our holdings at the Cadbury Research Library.

We are committed to making our service inclusive and respectful to all. There is much work to do to ensure our catalogues and research tools reflect this commitment. We are working to improve our knowledge and understanding, and revise the language used in our catalogues and finding aids. We aim to write for the future in a way that is relevant, helpful, does not make anyone feel excluded or unwelcome, or use prejudicial language. If you have any suggestions or comments, please email
