Other Material in the Special Collections

Other material is located in our Special Collections based on its age, fragility, or the ephemeral nature of the material:

  • Age - items over 100 years old are relocated into our Special Collections.
  • Fragility - items that have fragile paper, or damaged bindings may be relocated to our Special Collections.
  • Ephemera - some items that need more careful storage due to their physical design, or lack of availability in other Libraries are placed in Special Collections for safe-keeping.
  • Our Special Collections benefit from being stored in specially designed vaults which provide the correct temperature and humidity for preservation and conservation of the material.

Access is by appointment only Monday to Friday.  Please email specialcollections@londonmet.ac.uk for further information.
