University of Bradford, Special Collections, J.B. Priestley Library
Special Collections at the University of Bradford holds over 100 collections of archives and rare books, reflecting the University's strengths in social sciences and applied sciences and the history and culture of Bradford and its Yorkshire environment. Archaeology, religion, literature, politics, industrial history and above all perhaps peace studies, one of the University's best known departments. Our newest collections include:
- the archive of passionate writer and archaeologist Jacquetta Hawkes, which joins the archive of her husband, J.B. Priestley
- peace movement archives collected by the Commonweal Library
- biographical material about modern English bishops.
All are welcome to consult the collections, although appointments are needed to ensure staff are available to help.
Information about 46 of the archive collections is now available on the Archives Hub: more descriptions soon!
