ZSR's Special Collection & Archives holds thousands of source materials in all formats, concentrated in specific subject areas. British history and literature is a major focus of our published materials collections, so you may find sources relevant to your project here. Search strategies for Special Collections are listed below, but we encourage you to contact us with questions or to set up a PRS with one of our librarians.
To request materials, use the contact form or stop by the Special Collections & Archives reference desk, located in our Research Room (625) in the Reynolds wing of ZSR. Our regular hours are 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. More information about using Special Collections & Archives is available on our website.
