Archive and Special Collections | Blog


Finally finished!! For the past year I have been painstakingly compiling an inventory of books held in our combined collections of the West Yorkshire Society of Architects Library and Leeds School of Architecture Library.

In all there are one thousand and eighty two separate volumes. The earliest dates from 1565 and the most modern from 1994 (although the latter is a reprint of a an 18th century set of volumes). 

There is still a bit more work to do on the spreadsheet but hopefully this will evetually form the basis of a finding aid allowing greater awareness of and access to these collections.
