The collections in and around Durham provide rich resources for research across a wide range of disciplines. There are particularly extensive and significant materials relevant for subjects such as theology and religion, politics, music, the history of the book, visual and performance culture and ritual, world cultures, and the history of the north east. As well as these areas there are also sources for the study of natural sciences, mathematics, art history, architecture, geography and exploration, literature, philosophy, continental history, and the history of education.
