Public libraries

Remember that your local public library may stock some of the books and journals that you need and offer inter-library loan services, computing facilities and internet access.

Special libraries

This is not intended to be a comprehensive list of all Manchester and Salford Libraries but a selection of the more significant collections in terms of their potential usefulness for MMU researchers.

Many of these libraries allow access by appointment only. It is strongly recommended that researchers telephone prior to visiting any of these libraries to check opening times and  ensure that the material they seek is held there and available for consultation.
