The use of our collections for research and learning is as broad as the subjects that we cover.

Researchers come from across the world to access our books and archives. Closer to home, we work with scholars from many disciplines within the University of Reading.

We deliver and support teaching and learning with an emphasis on undergraduate use of collections and support for postgraduate and doctoral students.

We are part of a wider network of collections-based research and teaching within the University’s museums and collections
