Contents

A miscellaneous group of documents originally collected by Durham University Oriental Library. After the merging of the various University libraries, this material was transferred to the care of Archives and Special Collections, where it formed this separate sequence. Some items have been re-located into more appropriate collections, and some material has been added since the mergers. Some items share a common provenance with material now in Durham University Oriental Museum or amongst the printed books in the Oriental sequences of Durham University Library.

Accession details

The provenance of some items is not recorded. Most of the material was accessioned by the Oriental Library.

Conditions of access

Open for consultation.

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

Arrangement

The primary arrangement is by language, with material in or translated into European languages grouped in the class MS. OR/Eur.

Accruals

This collection remains the standard location for any newly accrued material in oriental languages that do not form part of a distinct collection.
