Special Collections at the University of Lincoln are held in the Zibby Garnett Library (First Floor opposite Group Room 2) in the main GCW Library.
A member of staff must be present at all times due to the nature of the material held in special collections.
If you have identified specific items you wish to see, you can request a virtual consultation via an online Microsoft Teams meeting or digitisation of Special Collections material.
Please note this may not be possible for all items due to their fragile nature.
Please don't hesitate to contact us with any enquires.
