Administrative history

The university had a library from almost its beginning, established in 1833 around Bishop Cosin's Library on Palace Green, though Cosin's Library itself only came into the university's trust in 1937. The library's collections supported the teaching of the university, and early significant deposits of rare books, along with links with the cathedral and diocese, encouraged future acquisitions of particularly archival collections to make it a major research resource in its own right for such as northern local and especially medieval history, as well as the twentieth century history of the Sudan.
The university similarly had a museum at its inception and, though its history is not one of quite such consistent development, it too has major research resources in its own right in local archaeology and the Orient. Only a little later, in 1839, the university established an observatory to make astronomical and then also meteorological observations. More recently a Sports Centre has been developed at Maiden Castle. The Computing Service, initiated in the 1960s, is now a vital and integral aspect of the work of all in the university.


Extensive records survive for the University Library almost from its inception in 1833 in the form of annual reports, minutes of its various committees, catalogues, and administrative files from especially after WW2. A particular subset within the library's archive is the records of the development and administration of its rare book and archival collections, especially since the addition of those of the former Palaeography and Diplomatic department in 1990. These include catalogues of the collections, almost all now replicated and augmented by online versions, and also correspondence with depositors/donors and enquirers. In addition, the library's archive has records of its separate Oriental, Science and Education operations, and the continual development of the former Science Library site as the Main Library for the university, and the various building projects that that development has entailed. A few items are also held for the university's Maiden Castle Sports Centre, the Computing Service and the Museums.

Accession details

Transferred from the various support services at various times since the 1950s, and especially since 2004.

Previous custodial history

Previously held by the various support services of the university.

Conditions of access

There is restricted access to administrative records less than 30 years old, with some further restrictions, generally as noted, on records less than 80 years old where the Data Protection Act applies.

Copyright and copying

Permission to make any published use of material from the collection must be sought in advance from the Sub-Librarian, Special Collections (e-mail PG.Library@durham.ac.uk) and, where appropriate, from the copyright owner. The Library will assist where possible with identifying copyright owners, but responsibility for ensuring copyright clearance rests with the user of the material.


Organised accordingly within each support service.


Some accessions are appraised on site before transfer, others are appraised when received at Palace Green. Clean duplicates are generally removed.


Continuous further accruals are anticipated. In April 2004, a retention schedule and other records management procedures were developed for the university's records to facilitate the regular transfer of records from the university's departments and offices to the archive. This draft retention schedule was developed further on the appoitment of the first university records manager in August 2006.

Finding aids

The current catalogues of the collections of the Main Library and the Archives and Special Collections are accessible online via the university's website.

Dates of creation: 1837 - 2006 Durham University Library was established in January 1833 on the Palace Green site, between the cathedral and the castle, with a foundation collection of 160 volumes donated by William van Mildert, the last prince bishop of Durham and the founder of the university itself. In order to house the original stock of the University Library, William van Mildert had a gallery constructed in 1834 within Cosin's Library, which had first been founded in 1669 as the episcopal or diocesan library by Bishop John Cosin (1595-1672) on Palace Green. The Cosin Library collection, strong in holdings of medieval manuscripts and early printed books, became part of the university's trusteeship only in 1937, although it had been used by members of the university from early in the university's history. The Cosin Library building is of international significance in the history of libraries for its structure and design, and also for the portrait panels painted above the bookcases by Jan Baptist van Eerssell in 1668-1669 on Cosin's instructions; there is also a further collection of portraits hanging in Cosin's library, including some half-length portraits of English divines and statesmen in all likelihood painted for Cosin himself.
The University Library expanded considerably during the 1850s with a series of major bequests and donations: by Dr Martin Joseph Routh (1755-1854) in 1854, by Bishop Edward Maltby (1770-1859) in 1856, and by Dr Thomas Mastermann Winterbottom (1766-1859) in 1859. The library had to extend its space to occupy also the upper two floors of the Exchequer Building, the former bishoprick law courts on Palace Green that date from 1450. An adjacent nineteenth-century lecture block was eventually given over to library use as well, and in 1966 an extension to the Palace Green Library site designed by George Pace provided a large reading room and a new stack. In 1983 the enlarged Science Library building on Stockton Road became the university's main library site with Palace Green left to house Law, Music, and Archives and Special Collections.
Recent developments in the operation of the library have included the introduction of an online circulation system in 1983. Online cataloguing commenced in 1990, with the closure of manual catalogues, and the Innopac library system was introduced in 1996, the year in which the library also joined CURL, the Consortium of University Research Libraries in the British Isles. The following year, EDI (electronic data interchange) was introduced for the transmission of the library's acquisition orders and the main library was further extended. In 1998, with the implementation of a Chinese, Japanese, and Korean module for its library management system, the library became the first UK institution to integrate in this way non-Roman script catalogue records for its East Asian language materials. A self-issue system was introduced at Queen's Campus Stockton in 2001, and the following year at the main library as well. Also in 2002, the Library adopted MARC21 for its catalogue records, and saw a card-entry access control system installed at both the main library and Queen's Campus Stockon sites. 2004 saw Durham Cathedral Library join the university library's management system for circulation and lending, the introduction of a self-return system at the main library, and the integration of the library's e-journal holdings information to the OPAC (online public access catalogue). In 2005, the Library began a major reclassification project to implement simplifications and modernisations to the existing complex classified arrangements for its collections by moving from four non-parallel classification schemes to one, the most up-to-date version of the Dewey Decimal Classification scheme. The holdings of college libraries also began to appear on the library's OPAC, renamed Catalogue in 2005.
Site Libraries
An Oriental Library was set up in 1950, based at Elvet Hill House in 1955, to house the exceptionally fine Oriental collections. On this site's closure in 1987, the holdings were transferred largely to the Main Library on the Science Site. Area Studies Collections relating to East Asia and to the Middle East and Islamic world still continue to constitute a major strength of the University Library's holdings.
The Institute of Education set up its own library in 1963 before this was incorporated within the University Library in 1979. It moved to the Main Building of the School of Education on Leazes Road in 1982.
A separate library for the new Science site had been established in 1924. After the War, this was established in the current Geography department building before gaining its own building in 1965, incorporating collections previously separated; ten years later, the university's former Zoology Departmental Library was also incorporated into that Library. The Science Library building was redesigned and extended in 1983 to become the Main Library.
In 1992 a small library was set up at Stockton to support the opening of the new campus there in that year. In January 1999 this library moved to the newly opened Information Resources Centre (IRC) on level 2 of the Ebsworth Building at Stockton. It became the Queen's Campus library in 2002 in recognition of Queen Elizabeth II's Golden Jubilee and the tenth anniversary of the Stockton campus.
Recent Major Bequests, Donations, and Acquisitions
The Sudan Archive was set up in 1957 by Richard Hill, a lecturer in Near Eastern history at the University of Durham, who was previously attached to the Sudan Government Railways and to the University College of Khartoum. The archive contains principally private papers of British subjects who lived and worked in the Sudan during the period of the Anglo-Egyptian Condominium (1898-1955).
The Bamburgh Library was deposited in 1958, consisting of some 8,500 manuscript and print titles (including 16 incunabula) across a wide range of subject areas. Accumulated largely between the mid-seventeenth and mid-eighteenth centuries by the archbishop of York, John Sharp (1644-1714), his sons and grandsons, the Sharp family collection was given to Lord Crewe's Charity. It was housed at Bamburgh Castle in Northumberland from the end of the eighteenth century, with additions being made to it until the mid-nineteenth century.
The University Library acquired an important collection of materials relating to Quakerism in 1972 when the bulk of the surviving collection of the Sunderland Preparative Meeting of the Society of Friends Library (c.880 printed volumes) was deposited, followed by a small number of related manuscripts in 1974.
The Basil Bunting Poetry Archive was acquired from 1987 onwards by purchase and gift from various sources, with assistance from the National Heritage Memorial Fund, the Purchase Grant Fund, English Estates North, and others. It constitutes the most extensive collection in the UK of the work of the north east poet, Basil Bunting (1900-1985) and of material relating to him, and it supports the work of the University's Basil Bunting Poetry Centre.
The Pratt Green Collection of hymns and hymnology was also established in 1987 with the gift, via the Pratt Green Trustees, of the collection of hymn books and related print and manuscript works formed by the distinguished hymn writer, Dr Fred Pratt Green, MBE. (1903-2000).
In 1990 a merger took place between the collections of the university of Durham's former department of Palaeography and Diplomatic (established in 1948) with those of the university library into which they were amalgamated.
Since 1991, the generous bequest of a former keeper of Oriental Collections in the Library, Ian John Charles Foster (1908-1978), has enabled the Foster Book Fund to be available for the purchase of books and periodicals relating to Christian art, architecture, archaeology, liturgy, and church organisation.
Undispersed holdings from the library of Lord William Howard (1563-1640), surviving at Naworth Castle in Cumbria, were purchased by the library in 1992, with assistance from the National Heritage Memorial Fund, the V&A Purchase Grant Fund, and the Friends of the National Libraries.

Library Users Committee
Reference: UND/EA1/B2
Dates of creation: 1965 - 2016
The records comprise minutes of the individual committees, (signed in the case of GLAC/ALAC), with agendas and papers submitted to the committees, with occasional other material such as lists of committee members and standing orders. The same papers were often submitted to both/all three committees. Much of the business concerned periodicals, recommendations for cancellation in times of financial stringency or for new titles to be acquired. Up to 1980 much of the decision making had to be referred up to the Board of Curators, but the new Library Committee was intended to allow greater freedom of action to the advisory committees.
An advisory committee for the Science Library was set up by Easter 1965. A general advisory committee for the Library was extant alongside this committee in Michaelmas 1965. This General Library Advisory Committee became the Arts Library Advisory Committee at Michaelmas 1983 when a Social Sciences Library Advisory Committee was also set up. The Library advisory committees were restructured in 1996 creating one committee from the Arts and Social Sciences Library Advisory Committees with the Science Library Advisory Committee opting for a continued separate existence to enable certain issues to be discussed more efficiently. By 2000, this structure was again under review, prompted by the developing needs of the new faculty of Health, Medicine and Environment; a single Library Users Committee with representation from Boards of Studies in all faculties was proposed. A separate Science committee survived for a brief time into 2001.
Membership comprised library staff and representatives of relevant departmental boards of studies with the chair usually coming from the latter. Meetings were held once or twice a term in Michaelmas and Epiphany and once a term in Easter. Meetings were occasionally variously held jointly and/or with the DSU library committee.

Librarian's files tempore Ramage
Reference: UND/EA1/GD David Goudie Ramage (1907-1986) took an English degree at Edinburgh University and then trained as a librarian at University College London 1929-1930. He worked as sub-librarian, or second-in-command, at Durham University Library 1930-1936 before going to a similar post at St Andrews University. He returned from there in 1945 to be university librarian at Durham until his early retirement in 1967. In Durham he lived at 35 South St, bringing his parents with him there from St Andrews, and he also had a second home in Moniave in Dumfriesshire. In addition to library work, he wrote poems n English and Scots, and painted portraits, decorating the room known as Little Cosin at Palace Green with representatives of poetry, law and science to complement the Cosin Library sequence. He initiated the rescue of Durham St Mary-le-Bow church and sustained the Bow Trust. He also supported the university's scouts and was vice-president of the Architectural and Archaeological Society of Durham and Northumberland 1967-1984.

5 The College files
Reference: UND/EA2/11
Dates of creation: 1959 - 1999, mostly 1990 - 1997
Correspondence files of the former Palaeography and Diplomatic Department staff based at 5 The College after their merger with the Special Collections department of the University Library to become Archives and Special Collections in 1990. The material covers enquiries about records held and information in them, requests to visit, individually or in groups, requests for reprographics and accessions of records, with copy responses from staff. The material is organised alphabetically by correspondent/organisation, and then chronologically. It generally covers the period from 1990 to 1997. Some long-running correspondence was brought over and continued from the previous filing sequences of Pal and Dip at Prior's Kitchen and 5 The College/South Road (the major sequences of these are noted in the list below). In 1997 most of the staff were transferred, with most of the records, to Palace Green.
The files were weeded by Genevieve Budd in November 2003 to April 2004.
