Libraries I would like to visit

I’ve been meaning to start a list of libraries that I would like to visit. A blog post seems as good a place as any to make it.

I’ll be revisiting and updating this post as I find new libraries, and cross old ones off the list.

AUSTRALIA

The National Library of Australia: the home of Trove. My book is in their archives (via legal deposit).

UNITED KINGDOM

The British Library: the national library of the UK. I actually visited the British Library back in 1995, and spent time drooling over the original Lewis Carroll and Samuel Taylor Coleridge manuscripts. But that was long ago…

The National Library of Scotland: I’m hoping to do the placement for my Masters course here.

Gladstone’s Library: a library in a stately home that includes bed and breakfast accommodation, so you can read late into the night. Located in Flintwick, Wales.

The Library of Mistakes: this library is a collection of business and finance works, dedicated to preventing us from repeating past mistakes. Libraries as activism. Located in Edinburgh, Scotland.
