The Students Lecture Notes collection is artificial collection comprising lecture notebooks of former students of the University of Manchester.
The notebooks record lectures in a number of subject areas including chemistry, medicine, law, physics, English, etc.
The lecture notebooks vary in content, detail and completeness, according to the compiler and the subject area. Some provide an almost verbatim account of lectures, others are more cursory.
The following collections of notebooks are present: James Partington (chemistry), Frank Chadderton (mechanics/maths), Barbara Price (English), James Kent (physics), Harold Jackson (chemistry and medicine), Charles Horrex (chemistry), and Harry Clough (chemistry)
The lecture notebooks have been assembled to provide background information on modes of student learning, and methods of teaching and knowledge transfer. In some cases, they may provide additional information on the lecturer delivering the lectures. Typically, these are areas where documentation of activity can be difficult, and lecture notes provide one means of understanding how subjects were taught at the University.
