Special Collections services will be very limited between 1 and 17 March (staff on annual leave). Apologies for any inconvenience!
We’ve not blogged a great deal recently – this is because we have been occupied with our application for archive accreditation. We have many exciting events and other news coming up so expect more here very soon.
I’ll be introducing our wonderful Special Collections to the Friends of Senate House Library this Wednesday, 15 January 2014. My talk, From Hidden Gems to Greatest Treasures, is at 6pm. All are welcome! Here’s the poster: BradfordJan2014 (2).
And here’s the website for the Friends, featuring several other talks for fans of archives and rare books.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from Alison and Martin, Special Collections, University of Bradford.
We are closed for the festive break 23 December-3 January inclusive. Sorry for any inconvenience. We hope you have a wonderful Christmas and we look forward to working with all our readers, colleagues, friends and supporters in the New Year.

Arts on Campus and Special Collections invite you to join us for Christmas drinks and eats and a chance to see our new exhibition in the company of its curators.
Arts Curator Amy Charlesworth, with help from Special Collections, explores the growth and significance of the most fascinating and distinctive facets of the University’s story: the Arts and Issues programme. See the Hockneys from the 1979 University Challenge win, campus buildings that never were and amazing 1970s political collages.
