Fashion Collection

The Fashion Collection is a collection of clothes, accessories, fabrics and haberdashery items which date from Victorian times to the current day. The collection is held in  the Materials Room in the Basement of the Sheppard Library.

New Exhibition

There is a display of selected items from the Special Books Collection currently on show on the Ground Floor area of the Sheppard Library. These are books which are too rare, valuable or fragile to sit on the shelves in the main collection. They are one of the special collections kept in the Materials Room which is normally open during term-time from 11am to 4pm Monday to Friday.

There are first editions, facsimiles, and copies from limited print runs, or books with movable or loose parts which might get lost. Come and have a look and see the sort of books we have in the Collection!
