Online Resources

The University Archives strives to make resources easily available to researchers by providing online access to digitised items and reference aids. The links below will take you to a variety of these.

We acknowledge the work of our Volunteer Group members who contribute their time to undertake many digitisation tasks.

University CalendarsThe University Calendar is published annually and, until 1999, provided extensive information about the University, its operation, courses, students and staff. In later years, information is restricted to course rules and content.
