Welcome to the Working Class Movement Library's online catalogue
You can use the online catalogue to search all our catalogued items:
The Library catalogue database contains details of our books, pamphlets and journals
The Archives database contains details of our archival material including trade union records, personal papers and records of organisations. It also contains details of the objects we hold such as banners, pictures, mugs and badges.
From October 2013 regular users of the catalogue will notice a few new features, such as:
- Links to audio files and other online library documents
- Links to relevant external websites
- Links between related library and archive materials
- More detail about journal articles
- More information about journal name changes
We hope that you find the new features useful.
Monday 15 September - the Library catalogue is experiencing some problems as we move across to a new server. Apologies - we're working on it...
Searching the catalogue
Searching the catalogue is quite straightforward. There a variety of ways of searching the catalogue, from simple search to more complex searches.
Search for an author
The best way to search for an author is to use the Advanced Search and enter the author's name in the format last name, first name/initial, e.g. Castle, Barbara or Hardie, K. And if you have any problems, just hit the help button.
Not all the items held in the library have been catalogued yet, but we do have lists of uncatalogued items on some of the other pages of this website.
