Research Resources

A selection of resources relevant for research into the CRC's collections.

Though these resources provide useful guidance on specific areas of the collections, we always recommend that you use them alongside the collection catalogues to make sure the information you have is up to date - for example, many of geographic guides have not been updated since publication and do not, therefore, include more recent acquisitions.
