File: University Library

Scope and Content

Most of the file is routine correspondence and papers concerning appointments, finance, donations of material etc. The file also covers the UGC visitation in 1974 (linked to the Library's extension plans) and its possible development as a copyright library. The file includes some interesting sidelights on the introduction of automation at the Library, as well as the proposal in the original Manchester Education Precinct project to rehouse the Library in the John Owens building. A discrete folder deals with the details of the Main Library extension project between 1975-1980 [Folder 6].
