Geology: library holdings
The Arkell Library is based on the bequest of the Jurassic geology and palaeontology books of W. J. Arkell. Together with other geological collections material, it comprises about 4,500 titles, including 14 current journals.
The geological archives include correspondence, manuscripts and a wealth of illustrative material relating to some of the most important figures in geology in the nineteenth century. The papers of William Smith, William Buckland, and John Phillips are among the most important geological archives in the English language. Later holdings include the papers of Wager, Arkell, and Edmonds.
