About the John Rylands Research Institute

The Institute brings together library professionals, humanities scholars and scientists to take research into new and unchartered territories.

Founded in 2013 as an Arts Lab, The John Rylands Research Institute is a unique partnership between The University of Manchester Library and the Faculty of Humanities to conduct new research into the University's Special Collections.

By building a dynamic international community of researchers, we can unravel and reveal the hidden ideas and knowledge of the Special Collections - and share their meaning with the wider world.
