Are you looking for ideas for research projects for yourself or your students working with Special Collections material? Or would you even just like a refresher on the wealth of primary resource material available to you for use in teaching and research in Special Collections?

If so, we would like to invite you along to an informal drop in event on Wednesday 12 March 4.30-7 pm in Special Collections on level 12 of the University library. We will have a wide range of books, manuscripts and archival material out for your perusal, ranging in date from the 12th century to modern times. Our aim will be to highlight underused collections, new acquisitions, or just simply those items that we know are crying out for further research.

At 5.30 we will have a special focus on the Hunterian Library, with a round table discussion to explore potential ideas and projects to feed into the upcoming tercentenary of William Hunter’s birth in 2018.

Wine and nibbles will be served. All are welcome and please pass on to any colleagues or students who may be interested.

Watch out for further details and information, but mark the date in you diaries now!
