About the John Rylands Research Institute

Our mission is to open up our Special Collections to innovative and multidisciplinary research, in partnership with colleagues in Manchester and across the globe.

The John Rylands Research Institute was founded in 2013. Our mission is to open up the University of Manchester Library ’s Special Collections to innovative and multidisciplinary research, in partnership with colleagues in Manchester and across the globe.

Through our collaborations with established academics, and by nurturing and supporting rising stars at the beginnings of their academic careers, the JRRI has created a community of world-leading researchers who are all working towards the common goal of opening up the Special Collections to a more diverse audience through new and innovative research supported by external grant capture.
