In the late 1990s the then West Midlands Regional Library System (WMRLS) managed the Futures together project which aimed to identify the value, scope and accessibility of special collections and archive holdings, encompassing printed, archival, photographic and media materials, held in diverse organisations across the region.
This project was funded with a grant from the Library and Information Commission and its final report was published in 2000 as Futures together: accessing special collections in West Midlands libraries and related sectors. The report’s appendix is reproduced here and contains a list of all University and Public Library managed special collections, including archival holdings, selected for on-site auditing during 1998/1999.
