These include subjects in the Humanities, Computer Science, the Social Sciences, Law and Nursing. The collections were initially housed in an underground basement as the Library in the early 2000’s.  From 2006, the collections were housed in a rented premise just directly opposite the Main Campus, which could seat just around 50 users at a time.
