YAHS archives at the Brotherton

Please note if you're thinking of visiting Special Collections at the Brotherton Library that rearrangements are in progress later this month, including improving the storage and retrieval of our own large maps. So the department's closed from 22 August, re-opening after the bank holiday long weekend on 1 September.

In future, more notice and preordering will be required to call up anything from the collections. This applies to all researchers and all items, not just our own. Please place orders at least 48 hours ahead of your visit.

Special Collections are currently streamlining and reviewing arrangements and facilities for all volunteers. Our volunteer co-ordinator, Belinda Wassell, will keep in touch with this. If you may be interested in volunteering with the archives, or with the library collections, please contact Belinda: yas.volunteers@gmail.com. There could also be opportunities for placements or internships in future.
