The Historical Collection
The University library is also custodian of a collection of historical books, some of which date back to the 16th century. The collection of over 1,000 volumes covers a wide range of subjects, but with the emphasis on all aspects of farming and rural life. Members of the public are welcome, by prior appointment, to view our Historical Collection of which we are justifiably proud.
