Drop in over lunch or during the afternoon for a rare opportunity to see some of the treasures held in UCL Library Special Collections. UCL cares for over half a million rare books, manuscripts and archival gems. These include medieval manuscripts, early printed books, manuscripts by Darwin, Captain Cook and Beethoven, rare Hebrew and Jewish material, the George Orwell Archive, and limited-edition poetry and literary magazines from the late C20th.

UCL Festival Of The arts hosts this special open afternoon at which a selection of items will be on display, with expert archivists, librarians and subject specialists on hand to discuss them and talk about the work of the library's Special Collections.
