Getting started

Manuscripts are original documents such as personal papers, letters, literary records, diaries and business records that document the lives and activities of people and organisations.   

This guide will help you to find and use our manuscript collections for your area of research.  Whether you are an academic, a student, an author, a family historian or local historian, a professional researcher or simply interested in a particular topic, this guide should help you to get started on your research journey through the Library's vast and amazing manuscript collections. 

You will need to sign up for a Library card to use many of the resources.
