Art History and the Adam Art Gallery welcome donations of archival material relevant to their work to add to the resources of the Research Centre. These consist of slides, digital images, DVDs, videotapes, books, catalogues, journals, Art History and Museum and Heritage Studies theses and research essays, and ephemera which have largely been gifted to Art History.
