Durham University Library

Publisher Description

Durham University was founded in 1832 and from the start attracted major collections into its library. Today the library contains over 1.5 million printed items and provides a wide range of electonic resources on its modern main site. At its Palace Green site the library houses extensive special collections including two which have gained Designated status — the Sudan Archive and Bishop Cosin's Library. Altogether there are over 70,000 books printed before 1850; 3,400 metres of archives; 100 medieval manuscripts; 30,000 maps and prints and 100,000 photographs. Amongst its major collections are the political and family papers of the Earls Grey covering the 18th – 20th centuries, from which items have been digitised to contribute to the RLUK 19th Century Pamphlets Online project.
