Hampshire People and Places – University of Southampton Special Collections Mon 31 July 2017

Invitation to ‘Hampshire people and places’ in the University of Southampton Special Collections

On Monday 31 July 2017, the Special Collections, Hartley Library, University of Southampton, will host the latest in its “explore the collections” events.

The Special Collections of the Hartley are putting on show a selection of archives and manuscripts relating to the History of Hampshire which may be of interest to local historians and garden history researchers.  It is an excellent opportunity to visit the HGT-Hutton Library where staff will be on hand to explain more about their collections.

Please note that places must be reserved.



Why not join us between 15:30 and 17:00 to discover more about the resources we hold for Hampshire ranging from topography to details of everyday life.

On show in the Archives and Manuscripts reading room will be an array of printed sources from the Cope Collection, as well as material from our manuscript collections. There will also be an opportunity to investigate the Cope Collection in Open Access Special Collections.

Space is limited.  To reserve a place, please go to:

As to parking – sadly the parking restrictions on campus remain during the vacation.  Please contact the Special Collections using the email so that they can see what the demand might be. The usual advice is the Pay and Display car park and the 2 hour parking in the roads behind the University.
