Our collections are reflective of Goldsmiths' influential position in the creative and performing arts, and involvement with the culture of the local communities as well as broader society in contemporary Britain.
We welcome three new collections that have arrived at Goldsmiths in 2012; Future Histories Archive - A collection of Black theatre and carnival archives from the 1970s on, WRPM - Women's Revolutions Per Minute, a collection of recordings of music performed, composed and produced by women and the library of Engage, the National Association for Gallery Education. These join our other major and specialist collections.
There is a supervised study area with listening and viewing facilities. A digital piano is available. Group visits can be accommodated and you are welcome to organise a seminar or workshop using material from the Special Collections. Copying is often permitted, subject to copyright permissions.
The Special Collections reading room is also open to post-graduates for quiet study, please call into the office to register
Special Collections is in G28 on the ground floor of the Library and is open from 10.00 - 18.00 Monday to Friday, and until 19.00 on Wednesday evenings (term-time only).
The Textile Collection and Constance Howard Gallery is in Deptford Town Hall and open 11.00 - 17.00 pm Tuesdays and Thursdays.
