About

Welcome to the University of Sheffield Library Digital Collections. Our key collections included here are the full set of resources from the National Fairground and Circus Archive and a growing set of resources from the various collections kept within the Special Collections department of the Library. Click on the collection links on the homepage to learn a little about each collection and to activate browsing and searching within that collection.

  

Scope

 

We intend to add a range of original archival formats in digital form. These include photographic image materials, printed materials such as ephemera, large or specialist printed formats such as plans, blueprints and maps, multi-page documents such as books, programmes and pamphlets, and finally exciting resources from our sound and moving image collections. Material will reside in non-proprietory digital formats to enable quick and long-lasting access.

 

Roadmap

 

We are adding exciting content all of the time so keep an eye on our activities. We have plenty of fascinating and unique material to bring to you to support your research and interests. All items will be richly described to facilitate users in discovering context and content. In addition we encourage you to leave comments, tags and ratings.
