Homerton College Library is home to several special collections – sets of materials that are united by a particular aspect, for example a particular topic or type of material, and are kept together outside of the main collection.
Our special collections are:
- Children’s Literature Collection – 10,000 borrowable books, 2,500 rare books and 5,000 children’s annuals.
- Multimedia Collection – DVDs, CDs and printed music.
- Local Collection – books about local natural history and landmarks.
- Wellbeing and Life Skills Collection – books about mental health, aspects of identity, and skills like cooking and bike maintenance.
You can find more detailed information in our Special Collections leaflet [PDF].
