SAULCAT - St Andrews University Library Catalogue

Named Modern Collections

The Library holds a number of Named Modern Collections.  These are collections of material in specific subject areas, which have either been donated by specialist collectors or are being actively developed by Schools or Departments to support the University's teaching and research in particular fields.  In some cases the collections are held together in separate shelving areas (e.g. the Iranian Studies Collection at classmark ISC), and in others (e.g. the Runciman Collection) they are dispersed throughout the Library's collections generally.

Listings by classmark are available on each Collection page.
