Special Collections Catalogue
Welcome to the unified catalogue of the holdings of the University of Sheffield Library's Special Collections Department.
By typing keywords into the Search box, you can locate relevant archives and books within our archival and book finding lists, from which a reference number will enable you to request specific items.
Type in your keyword, then click on a thumbnail on the Results page. Select the Tab for 'Text' and this will show you the full text of the finding list with your keyword highlighted. The number of instances of the keyword is indicated in red, and you can use the up and down arrows to move from one to the next. Make a note of the reference numbers for any that interest you so that you can ask to view them when you visit us.
This catalogue does not include our Rare Books Collection, which can be searched via the Library's StarPlus catalogue.

Clapham Papers, Firth Ballads, Hartlib Papers, Hewins Ballads, Krebs Papers, Miller Papers, Morris Papers, National Play Collection, Redgrove Papers, University of Sheffield Radar Archive, Waechter-Higgs Collection.
