Welcome to the John Rylands Library’s Special Collection blog. With fabulous collections and lots of exciting things going on, we thought it was high time we entered the ‘blogosphere’. Here you will find the latest news about recent acquisitions, cataloguing projects, academic engagement activities, and our vital work to support research and learning at the University of Manchester and beyond.
Whether you are a first-year undergraduate or a senior academic, or are just curious about our Special Collections, we hope that you will find something here to interest you. We are keen to receive your comments and suggestions on topics for postings, and we hope regularly to feature guest blogs, from researchers and from friends and supporters of the Library, both near and far. So don’t be shy.
