What’s different about this resource?

All libraries and archives have a different emphasis and history. Our archive has been gathered over 40 years and holds unique materials from national and local activism in pamphlet format including Roneo to lithographic publications, plus badges  alongside key books ranging from the 1920s onwards and many hard copy EU documents which predate the EU’s digitisation of  its records. Our specialism is civil liberties and the state.

The Collection has been gathered since 1977 and  comprises:

  800+ books,
