ASC Collections information

    Durham University Library Archives and Special Collections contains material in different formats, including archives, manuscripts, printed books, photographs, maps and films. The format of a collection may affect how it is stored and catalogued. Broadly, printed collections are catalogued on the Library catalogue, while manuscripts and photographs are catalogued in the archive catalogue. Nevertheless, many archives contain printed items, and most collections contain material in more than one format. The contents of both of these catalogues, along with the museum catalogue, have all been combined into our Discover service which offers a means of searching across the collections and electronic resources.
