Special Collections blog

Did you know that Brunel University has special collections housed in the library? These are collections that are particularly rare or even unique and which need special care when storing and using them. Brunel is home to collections covering a diverse range of subjects, including Shakespeare, jazz, the Channel Tunnel, working class autobiographies, Middle-Eastern music, poetry, transport history and South Asian literature, theatre, music and art. The collections are used by researchers and also in teaching.

You can find out more about what’s happening in Special Collections on our blog and sign up to follow us on Twitter.
